How do I make myself stop living inside my head and actually be the person I know I could be?
it's difficult to do at first but say it when you think of it. Don't overthink the situation, don't be overly critical. Most people don't remember really specific things you say so if you say something dumb it's not a huge deal.
In the same boat, opie
> be the person I know I could be?
That's really it, man. The person I can be is locked away by my fear of social judgement.
I always have a uneventful, awkward exchange, and then replay the exchange later in my head where I'm outgoing and I say all sorts of witty, fun things.
Will it ever change?
Holy fuck. This is me in every social situation I've been in. People are talking about a topic relevant to my interests. Think of all this good shit to say. After I've formulated my thoughts, they've moved on to another topic. Repeat process.

>now when I want to tell someone about something they said in the past I refrain from doing it

How do I get a job? I've been applying to supermarkets and office supply stores in my area but I haven't been getting any replies. Do stores actually care about people who apply online, or am I going to have to apply for a job in person?
You fucked up, seasonal was your best time for a job. I'd say drive around and look for help wanted signs and apply in person. If you don't have the experience, it'll look bad for you when there's nothing to go on but that.
The only experience I've had working is ~80 hours of community service that I had to do during high school. That doesn't seem very substantial to me so I typically leave it off of applications.
Having a great memory is a sign of intellect, brobots.
I remember conversations I had 10 years ago (I'm 30).
Don't let the normies bring you down, you have a gift.
