hmm…it can indeed be difficult praying the Rosary, but when you pray it right it really tends to help a lot. I found no benefit to it until I started praying it thoroughly with more attention. If it’s hard for you to do this (which is more than understandable lol the Rosary isn’t easy), there’s this booklet called “praying the Rosary without distractions” and it gives a point to reflect on for each Hail Mary… so let’s say you’re praying the first Sorrowful Mystery: the Agony in the Garden, and there are 10 Hail Mary’s, so for each one it gives something like:
Jesus comes with His disciples to Gethsemane: “Stay here, while I go yonder and pray.”
Entering the garden with Peter, James and John, Jesus prays, “My soul is sorrowful unto death.”
Jesus sees the sins of all mankind, whose guilt He has taken unto HImself
it’s available online here, just click on the different ‘mysteries’ at the top:
I’ve found it helps to give something to think ABOUT while you’re praying the Rosary so not so many distracting thoughts get in your head.
I dunno I try to deal with scrupulosity too so that’s just something that I found useful
I’ve also found that perseverence is really the key, sometimes it’s hard to pray, but if we persevere, that pleases God cause it shows what’s in our will. (we’re making the choice)
But you said that your pray the chaplet of Divine Mercy, that’s great, it’s one of my favourite prayers and it’s really powerful. I love it too.
this book has also really helped me:
