I want to begin playing the electric guitar. What will I need to start off with other than the guitar itself if I plan to play by myself?

I was told I could use headphones to listen to music I make and people mentioned a lot of different things such as female to male, amps, male-male, tuners, extra strings, cords and straps, and effects, and now I'm not sure what I'll need at all
