Have you ever thought about the difference between sensitivity and shyness? (High) sensitivity is related to a sensitive nervous system  and is heritable, shyness on the other hand, is a state of mind or a character trait and is never inherited.
Nevertheless, highly sensitive people are often wrongly labelled as shy, although all they need is quiet or distance from other people. Unfortunately, the word “shyness” carries negative connotations with many people and is confused with timidity, insecurity, nervousness, self-consciousness or diffidence, which can be very irksome for highly sensitive people (who are actually not shy).
DON’T LET YOURSELVES BE TALKED INTO ANYTHING!
Therefore, my dear highly sensitive people, make yourselves aware of the difference between sensitivity and shyness. Do not allow yourselves to be told by others that you are shy. After all, highly sensitive people are just like everyone else and are not invulnerable to self-fulfilling prophecies, and I am sure you can well do without those.
The Ascended Master MARTHA provides us with her energy in the form of an Aura Essence as a spiritual tool for inner stability and natural authority. It is especially suited for becoming aware of and living one’s power and strength.
