I'm shy and I'm awful at conversations. When I'm with my close friends I do the thing with words and everything is great. When I'm with new people, I very rarely think of something to actually say.
With girls that I'm interested in, I get butterflies and feel like I'm auditioning for the voice (I'm awful at singing, no this isn't relevant).
So I guess my question is essetially how do you be comfortable with everyone? I'd love it if I could talk to random strangers the way I easily talk to my best friends. Anyone have any wonderful tips or tricks? This is really bugging me and I'll try imagining people as giant random birds if that's something that works

1) Don't filter yourself as much. Don't think so hard about what you're going to say. Let the words flow (within reason).
2) Give less of a fuck overall.
3) Practice, practice, practice. Just start with saying hi to random people, and go from there. Talk to people in line, in class, etc.
4) Don't "try" to do anything, just let yourself talk.2
