“Shy” is one of the first English wors that you will learn in a English language course. Cambridge dictionary defines it as “uncomfortable with other people and unwilling to talk to them”. On “The Mastery of Love”, Don Miguel Ruiz wrote

But if you are not so lucky, the domestication can be so strong and the wounds so deep, that you can even be afraid to speak. The result is, “Oh, I am shy” Shyness is the fear of expressing yourself. You may believe you don’t know how to dance or how to sing, but this is just repression of the normal human instinct to express love.

It is a interesting way to see things and I agree with Miguel.
