I think you need to find an instrument that you want to play. Fighting the guitar is no fun. If are close to a well stocked music store it would be worth your time to go in and play a variety of guitars. Electric is by far the easiest guitar to play - low string tension and low action being the main differences you will notice.
And while I don't like suggesting particular gear, in this case I will. Try an Ibanez Gio Mikro guitar. It's overlooked as a kids guitar but shouldn't be. It's hands down a rock machine that is super easy to play. It makes a great guitar to start with.
