Hard to say... The problem is most people when introduced to a type of math they need analogies and concrete examples for them to understand it. So doing anything past Proofs or Analysis can be tricky for most because it requires a really unpopular way of thinking. Abstract math isn't impossible to grasp. However in general most people struggle. Like remember when you first introduced to the concept of putting an x with numbers? It was unfamiliar and even daunting to some of those in my class. Once you realized that the x meant something using some example that were "relatable" to something you were familiar with then you could work with it. Now bring this up to undergraduate pure math programs, that x becomes proofs and theorems and generalizations. The difference here is that a proof at least from my experience can't be related to say some object or some specific thing. It is it's own thing so now you need to work with it.

If this is something you've been reflecting on yourself, try proofs. Immerse yourself in abstract math and see if you can really understand it. Chances are if you understand what's going on your brain becomes blue and enlightened and the realizations you start to have about math really change your perspective as a whole.

If this doesn't work out for you do something for related computationally. Engineering, Bio sciences, Physics or even applied math.

Pure Math is the Autist kid that doesn't blend in with the crowd, yet what constitutes pure math even for me is still beyond me in a way where it seems like magic.
