Help with my boyfriend

So I'm 18 quite new to relationships. I've been dating this guy for over 6 months now. Lately we've been having a few issues. Someone in his family has passed away and hes acting super weird and I know that he doesn't handle stress very well. Last time he broke up with me due to his stress and suddenly I'm very scared again. Though he assured me that he loves me very much and cares about me and wouldn't do what he did because he was very stupid last time. I am still a little paranoid. How do I handle this?
