Its clear you are deciding which language to learn for future and to not wasting time. Answer is: you are wasting time right now. Whatever language you would learn, learning other one in the future would be much easier. Most impotrant things on the beggining, especially with low level programming is to understand patterns, techniques, paradigms. Rust is good place to start, because it learns you proper thinking about ownership, hermetisation and other stuff. If you start here and migrate to C++, you would be able to avoid many mistakes. Starting with C/C++ would be easier on the beggining, but it would hurt you in the future.
