Hello Michael. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. To loosen your bolt, you will turn it counterclockwise. Hopefully it was not cross threaded at some point.

You are already attempting to loosen your bolt correctly, and turning it the correct way.

If you have an impact wrench, or can borrow one, it may help to loosen your bolt.
