Quantum Mechanics … Why is it tough to understand?

So, in my quest of learning, I am now doing some research around Sankhya Shastra and also complementing it by the current knowledge that we humans posses in the field of Quantum Mechanics. I was also refreshing the knowledge I already seem to have on the topic, which I have to be honest is very basic. I am not a physicist, hence, I don’t do actual experiments, nevertheless I am decent enough with thought experiments based on the things that I have learn before While I was reading up and enhancing my knowledge in the field, I was also meeting up with some friends and acquaintances, when I spoke to them about QM, they seemed to have no idea about it.
