When do you decide to give up on learning JS?

So i’ve been trying to learn JS for a few months now. and I get some of it, but I really struggle with the tasks and knowing how to start. Im wondering, at what point do you say to yourself, its time to walk away and I may never get it…

Anytime. Never getting it is not a thing, though… It just happened that you give up.

I think you’re being far too hard on yourself.

Javascript is a coding language so it isn’t easy to learn. If someone who’s never done it before said ‘I know how to start every task, I don’t struggle at all!’ I’d assume they were cheating and looking at the answers.

If you don’t know where to start or are struggling on tasks, that’s normal. It isn’t a sign you can’t get it, it just means you’re learning. If you get some of it, but not all of it, that just means you need to keep practicing.

No one can make you continue to learn Javascript if you don’t want to. But the only way to guarantee you ‘never get it’ is if you stop trying.

But if you keep going, keep trying, the knowledge will fall into place at some point.
