Javascript is a completely different beast to learn. I was a backend guy and then started working in project which had loads of Javascript in it.

It just went over my head at the start but I dug my heels and decided to learn it and haven’t looked back since.

Also with es6 it has got lot better.

My first Back-end Language was PHP when i switched over to JS. It was really messy for me. like when PHP provide in-build session handling and you have t install modules to handle sessions it was real hard for me.
But since i worked on it a lot, I kind of fell in love with it.
