Well, I'm not a native, but

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/reticence

    ret·i·cence  (rt-sns)
    n.
    1. The state or quality of being reticent; reserve.
    2. The state or quality of being reluctant; unwillingness.
    3. An instance of being reticent.

I definitely meant the 2. definition.
