Hey there @PhatDawg
Every DAW will be rather intimidating when starting to learn about it, there's no secret : it takes time & practice and there's nothing wrong about this, we've all been there once
Take your time and learn the basics at your own pace, you'll feel more comfortable with time and it will become much more intuitive. It's easy to feel overwhelmed at the start but it's the point where you should not give up.
Once you get around the basic DAW workflow and how to work with Midi & Audio you'll already feel more at ease and will be able to get some results, then over time you'll learn more about advance features, effects ...etc.
Some DAWs might feel more intuitive to use than others and that's where each producer has it's own preference, but again, it won't happen overnight and it takes some time. Now if you feel like Cubase isn't your thing after some time, then try to demo other DAWs as well, but giving up right from the start is a mistake in my humble opinion, don't forget that it took many years to any renowned producers to get their knowledge and feel at ease with using their DAW and music production techniques.
Keep it up going and don't let yourself being impressed by all those menus & options, DAWs are very powerful software, especially nowadays, think about a photographer that will decide to dive into digital pictures editing with something like Adobe Photoshop, it's ok to feel lost right from the start, nothing wrong with that
