Guitar strumming is not so much difficult until you make it difficult. The practice is the only way to make it easy, and only you can do it.

Maybe your question is more challenging than the learning strumming itself, practice along videos with a metronome and proper time intervals would improve the outcome indeed:)

It is difficult because it involves more than one notes at a time as well as it takes time to make your wrist flexible to strum. You need more strength on your Wrist. Mute the strings with your left hand and practice 8th Notes patter Up-Down Stroke later try to do the same with 16th notes.

It's not difficult, the answer to it that why you think so is that you are not used to feeling the pulse, the tempo on which you are playing. Playing the guitar will come easily when you keep repeating, without judging yourself. So one approach is to practise with a metronome. Standard 60 BPM. Count 1,2, 3,4 . All downstrokes. So now do with your right hand all downstrokes at 1,2,3,4. Don't motivate yourself to play a song which is at the desired tempo; probably fast may be slow. Your body needs to feel the tempo, the pulse, that were all quarter note where 1,2,3,4 lies. Keep on repeating; you will be able to do it.

Start with easier strumming patterns like DDU or DDUDU with basic chord progression like A minor & E major. This will help you to cope up.

Nothing is easy or difficult; it's just the way you play.All you need to check is your left hand( chord holding hand) nicely warmed up by playing warm-up exercises, and your right hand(strumming hand) is ready to strum the pro patterns.

Sometimes the strumming patterns contain massive dynamics of blocking and maintaining treble and bass at the same time. So, what you have to do is first to understand the metronome and divide the pattern into parts and go slow and leisurely. It will stabilise the way and will make it more comfortable...
