  1. God forbid you choose a philosophy for your life. You will live someone else's life (this is the tragedy of many in our time). You already have your own philosophy. And if it has started to speak (you, even if in an inept form, ask philosophical questions that boil down to the question “how is this possible?”), then it can be continued using philosophical methods. To do this, it is better for you to come to conversations with a living philosopher, who a little earlier than you did the way to consolidate the philosophy that “spoke” in him. Only the one who has already fixed it will help. A lot of people who know philosophy. But, unfortunately or fortunately, “much knowledge does not teach the mind” (Heraclitus). Here, the mind is what I really see and understand what is happening in my life (by the way, such a vision without illusions requires some courage. What if you don't like it? But it's there. I already have it. And then it is important to accept it. Acceptance allows you to move in a different direction. Otherwise, choose what you want).

  2. It's not even a choice (although this is part of the process) – you can create your own philosophy of life based on the ideas and doctrines already available in the culture. I can suggest several starting points if you are interested.

    As such, the philosophy of life, i.e. the system of practical guidelines and recommendations “how to live better”, is represented in European culture vividly in the schools of Stoicism and Epicureanism, for example. And also, of course, secular humanism and its ideals of rationality, enlightenment, and so on.

    In the East, first of all, of course, Buddhism comes to mind, followed by Taoism (and Zen Buddhism, as a kind of hybrid of both). But this is not all, of course.

  3. Why do you need it? Read recognized writers, poets, philosophers, etc., and form your own view of things. Moreover, the word “Choose” here looks like you are in a store =)

    Your position should be based on your own views and beliefs, but the basis of these very views and beliefs can be formed in many ways, in my opinion the best – books

  4. Apparently the only way, trial and error, but it's not bad… If the error remains in memory, it will not work again, and it will fall into something similar. There is also a need for courage. Neither who nor when, will not pour on you lying on the couch banal joys, especially wisdom.

  5. Independently identify and analyze the structure of your native language, then you will have the most objective scientific worldview, since it is in the structure of the language that two qualitatively different levels of the natural sequence of human and social development are most objectively reflected.

  6. Understand what you like about life. Understand your morals and cultures. It is possible to choose a support or an imitator. That's the point. Perhaps this is how you will find your philosophy.
