Python migration

I have recently migrated to python, I knew c++ (decent level) but I’m new to competitive programming,
I have participated in the previous contests (div 2) I was able to solve those in python but it’s kinda
slow meaning even for the brute force problems I couldn’t successfully submit my code.

Now I’m wondering whether I should stick with c++ itself after seeing this result and most of the people in any site of this kind are using C or C++

Can you suggest me some or just your views on it,
(I’m confused anyway)
