Is it possible to change our own hearts? I would like to soften my heart, but because I committed sins in the past I am afraid that I will enter hell and these thoughts are a big burden. I always feel ashamed before praying to Allah because I am ashamed of some things that I did/do. Does it help regarding previous major sins, if we try to work on our character and soften our hearts?

Part of your repentance is to ask Allah for forgiveness every time you remember your sins. It is when you stop that you should start to worry.
