I cant comprehend the bonfires

I have been working my way through the bonfires, even solving a few of them here and there. But for most of them, I either don’t understand where to start, what the problem is asking, or how to find the solution. I understand it is supposed to be pushing us of the liff so we can become problem solvers and find our own way, but I feel like I am so far from knowing what I need to know that I will never get there.

I want to take a break from the bonfires to increase my knowledge of javascript and solving challenges. What are some good resources that could help me get to a point where the bonfires aren’t entirely insurmountable?

What’s one Bonfire you’re having issue with?

How about a nice video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL9Ri8pO68w
