I would personally advise you to go with what you're comfortable with and good at. But starting out I found python easier to learn as a beginner
I definitely do love Python. Is it only good as a Scripting language though?
Python can be used in a wide range of things, it's used in data science, you can code GUI desktop applications, web development using one of its web micro-frameworks like Flask, or even a framework like Django, and of course my favourite, MACHINE LEARNING.
I have to admit, I had a hell of a lot more fun learning Python than I am learning Java.
I love Visual Studio Code and it's simplicity.
Personally, I reckon that if you genuinely feel you "love" a language (as you say you do with Python), then stick at that, at least in the short term. You'll get further learning a language you enjoy than by trying to slog through something you don't, at least in the first couple of years anyway.
You'll find learning your second language is much easier, so don't stress too much about learning "the right one" today.
IMO, at least. :)
