I wondered how many people there were in the world who suffered, and continued to suffer, because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve, and in their blindness and folly built up a great distorted wall in front of them that hid the truth.
My feelings are too loud for words and too shy for the world.
Don't be shy: for to be shy means that you do not believe in who you are or your worth.
Shyness is just egoism out of its depth.
I'm very shy so I became very outgoing to protect my shyness.
Shyness is inherently uncomfortable; introversion is not. The traits do overlap, though psychologists debate to what degree.
I always felt I had to fill silences, usually by singing or whistling. It was nerves and shyness, really.
