I sometimes do a little drill where another guy tries to use my face as a double end bag. He tosses on gloves and just jabs to his heart's content, and I just bop around trying not to get busted. Other than helping head movement/blocking, you're guaranteed to be hit when someone's throwing speed jabs in volume without any fear of you throwing a counterstrike.

Although someone might disagree, I think workin' the heavy bag helps the problem you've described too. You said you have problems just letting your hands go, because you tense up. So punch the bag till you're about dead exhausted, til your shoulders and arms are on fire, till your lungs ache, and then throw some more punches. Gets you in that mindset of pain is pain, but regardless of how much anything hurts - eyes forward, chin down, hands up, and swing.

No need for me to explain the obvious experience of sparring and getting hit any further than it's already been explained by others.

jeot has a little shameless behaviour in the past
1st, Thing for me was just spar alot

2nd, Thing its a normal reaction to close your eyes when something is thrown at you. How to work on that?

Stand with your back against a wall and tell a training partner to slowly start throwing punches at you and just focus on keeping your eyes open and guard up. When your getting comfortable start increasing speed and power.

A funny "trick" that can also work is that you take a bucket fill it with water look down on it and start splashing it towards your face, the normal reaction is to close your eyes so try to keep them open, might help with the flinching reaction.

ps. english is not my native language, dont be harsh on me : )

sadly the only real answer is sparring and time
everything else has been more of a way to pass the time waiting for sparring to work then it has actually helped
the good news is I probubly had some of the worst case of Gloveshyness ever and with a bit of consistent sparring I got over it

oh, be sure and spar with people that have good control, you don't need someone trying to take your head off when you are already having trouble
