Being a pioneer isn't always fun!
Those growing pains currently manifest in high gas prices, unintuitive UI/UX, poor scaling, lots of jargon, unknown upgrade timelines and many other things.
If you take this (very generous) estimation of how many "users" Ethereum-based DeFi apps currently have, you'll get ~174,000.
There are literally 14 year old's on TikTok that have more followers than that.

This is okay.
Apps come first, then the infrastructure (read below for more color on this).
The more pioneers we add, the healthier the ecosystem becomes.
For example, @argentHQ just launched v1 of their mobile wallet app that aims to abstract away as much of the "Ethereum stuff" as possible.
We *will* solve these problems.
Come back in a few years when we've built out the mega-city that is Ethereum - though you'll have missed out on all the fun of the journey to get there :)
It's time to build (on Ethereum)!
