Insecurity (8)

My boyfriend keeps thinking I'll definitely break up with him. He finds this prospect too painful to think about and tries to push me away. Usually I can get him to calm down and not look at things so negatively, but I hate to see him suffer like this. He says he can't trust me, but he really wants to, and that it's his fault for overreacting all the time. How can I gain his trust? I've honestly never done anything that should make him feel this way... he gets jealous over things like me being in the same class as someone else he knows is (or used to be) interested in me. He thinks I'll easily change my mind and dump him, and he believes that because he gives me all this trouble when he's jealous, I deserve someone better. So once in a while, he'll try to break up with me, but by the end, he'll ask me to promise to never leave him...
Over time, I hope, he'll come to trust me, but if there's anything I can do to speed this up...
