Difficulty with the rosary

I have read that St. Therese of Lisieux had an aversion to the rosary.  So I am not in bad company.

I realize that the rosary is not obligatory, but I want to comply with Our Lady's requests and I want the graces that come from praying the rosary.

St. Therese and Bl. Bartolo Longo, pray for us.
Yes...I've always struggled with the Rosary.  So...I don't even attempt to pray it.  For lack of a better way of saying it, that particular method of prayer doesn't speak to me, if that makes any sense.  But then, I am a Byzantine Catholic, and praying the Rosary isn't really a part of our tradition as I was taught it.  On the other hand, the Jesus Prayer is, and I pray it every evening and on and off throughout the day.
