Synonyms of "Confess" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre i have set myself to confess my love. e i have set myself up to confess my love. ?
A: Second sentence is more natural.

However, “set myself up to do something” means you’ve done something to cause yourself to be trapped in a situation where you have no choice but to do it. Hence it has a negative notion to this type of expression. In this case, it means you have no choice but to confess your love.

"Admit" is usually less serious, "I admitted that I hadn't heard of it," and it's often brought about by others prompting or asking.
