I noticed that whenever I switch from forehand to backhand or vice versa, I tend to shift my grip a little and this hinders my reaction speed, however if I do not shift my grip, the racket feels like it's in the wrong position and it also limits the flexibility of my strokes.
My question is:
Is it normal to shift my grip or am I holding the bat wrongly?
You have found out why it is difficult to have two different grips.
The solution is to find a neutral grip that feels reasonable for both sides. Do a lot of switch hitting in practice and see if you can find that happy medium. Also hold the grip a little looser. This will allow subtle adjustments without having to move the racket in your hand.
