Oboes are by nature very high breath resistant instruments due to how narrow the bore is - it's just under 4mm in diameter at the top end of the top joint at base of the reed socket, whereas a clarinet is just under 15mm and a flute is from 17mm to 19mm along the playing length of the headjoint.

You can use softer strength reeds to make things easier for you, but not so soft they're difficult to control the tone, tuning and volume, nor too hard to cause problems starting, sustaining and making diminuendos on long notes easily.
