You're not alone. The whole world wants you dead. We're in this together.
There is a huge and excellent community for this game already. There are tons of hints written for you telling you what to do or warning you about dangers. You can see ghosts of other players playing the same area. Also, you can look at bloodstains that activate someone's last moments before dying.
And then there is the co-op. You can summon or be summoned to someone's game and help each other out. When things get very hard, it's the only option.
(There are also invasions, but it's been less common than in Demon's Souls and you can easily avoid them...unless you want to be the betrayer)
