In your words simply, how will you define the term 'Philosophy'. I don't want definitions already done by big authors or philosophers. As a simple and common man, in your opinion, what is philosophy......
Philosophy is basically whatever we ubderstand by developing a reflection of our experiences and incidents of life. Everyone wants a better standard even a criminal also, for instance, a criminal plans a crime but if he/she is unsuccessful, the second time he/she plans in a better way. Therefore, everyone has two philosophies of life-
A. Life has to go on no matter how many hindrances are there in path.
B. Things we do not recieve ones, we try again to be successful.
The rules, ethics and morals that you have chosen to live your life with your full conviction becomes your philosophy for your life. You inherit some from your environment and people who have influenced you and some you formulate for yourself after your experiences and questioning them with deeper introspection.
