Junction Box issues

At this point I'm unable to get wires and receptacle back into box, wires way too stiff. Is this a space issue or am I missing something else?

Thanks Patrick

You may have cut the wire too short.
Usually, you can bend wires to corner and loop as needed. Using a deeper box will help too.

In addition, the splice of the grounds does not look correct. They cannot just be twisted around each other.
