Sometimes understanding is not immediate. If you can't understand the editorial after a long time then just leave the problem for a while. Keep going back to it from time to time.. hard or new concepts takes time to internalize

Even after that if you don't understand, Leave it for a while. Come again when you are experienced enough around that Rating.

Ps: Trying to understand through blog editorials >>>> Video editorials. Be proud that you are not trying to get spoon-fed. Don't give up.
