Could someone please give me simpler instructions on how to make my image

The shortest way to achieve this is:
1. Select the background, i.e. with the Lasso or the Intelligents Scissors tool or the Quickmask feature.
2. Use the Brightness/Contrast tool to adjust the brightness.

If you want to have finer adjustments use the Levels tool: drag the
right and/or middle triangle slider a bit to the left.
To make the background look a bit more homogenous, use Filters/Blur/
Gaussian Blur between steps 1 and 2.
If you want to make the background pure white: use Select/Feather
to make the border of the selection a bit softer. Then drag the white
color from the Color selector into the selection.

To get rid of the disturbing upper left corner: crop it away with
the Crop tool or clone it away with the Clone tool.
