I'm not great at algorithms and I used to be scared of it as well. Like many others who said already, it takes time. But what really helped me is to change my mindset and my overall approach to these types of challenges. This helps me to panic less because I'm not too overwhelmed and therefore could think much more effectively.
This post explains it very well: (make sure you're on the article view to see everything)

Also, don't forget that you're basically solving algorithms pretty much everyday of your working life as well!
Hope it helps!
