No idea what I'm doing and I want to cry

I just want to set up a simple website, maybe a wordpress site, idk. I just want to put up maybe a basic image background and I want to add links to my other sites. I have no idea what I’m doing. Droplets? Kernals? wtf is even this? I don’t know the first thing I am doing. People are setting up websites, can I do this one day? Because I feel like I’m about to have a breakdown. Why can’t this be easy? I tried to do ‘setting up wordpress in ubuntu’ walkthrough, and 4 pages later after clicking links, I’m totally lost, no idea what I’m doing, why can’t this be more simple? I ‘created an openlightspeed wordpress droplet’ … wow this helped? No? Not at all. I need to know my root? wtf am I even doing? I don’t want to give up and never succeed in building a webpage. But I can’t seem to figure this out. Do I have to pay someone an assload of money to walk me through this? Why … :'(

Set up a WordPress site with OpenLiteSpeed WordPress 1-Click droplet should take less than 10 minutes. If you don’t want to access to the server at all, then I believe a hosting company is an option for you.
