The people here are worse than the people on the PS4 board? interesting.
Just ignore them, MH is i'm not gonna lie a pretty difficult game it's just different than most games basically. Just keep working at it and trust me you'll start having tons of fun. If you like I can even give helpful tips what weapon are you using?
The easy option is really easy... Learn to dodge, don't overhit the monster and watch its patterns. They've even provided the monster location for the demo so you don't have to look through each area to find it. With easier access to items too(touch screen) as long as your weapon's sheathed (Y default while weapon out).
This is a learning game, not a stat game, so you the player needs to improve in order to get the most out of titles like this.
