Data Structure is organising or structuring data so that searching, inserting, updating etc becomes much easier with minimum overhead.

complexity is at the user side in understanding not for the compiler.

data structure is a way of organising and using the memory effectively and efficiently.

Although you have to deal with the complexity but you curb many problems that the users may experience.

For eg. imagine how much data is stored in the servers of facebook. . .its massive . . .and yet the computing of all that data is feasible in finite (and very less) time. . .will i visit fb if it takes say 1 minute to like a comment. . . hell no . . .so the engineers at fb have to devise an algo and implement the DS which conforms with that algo.

It may be complex but its worth it.
