I found that I underestimated how hard it was for me in the beginning.
I had to learn C in university and I applied for BA first and thought coding is for monkeys (What an arrogant prick I was...). I hated it, I didn't understand anything first but I struggled trough. At some point it made "click" and I loved it ever since.
The funny thing is, afterwards I was biased in believing coding is easy and it has been for me from the beginning. It took me a while to realize how hard it was for me to start.
