A reflexive pronoun shows that when someone or something affected by an action is the same as the person or thing doing it. This form is used less in English than some other languages.

For example:-

  • I looked at myself in the mirror.
  • She/He drove herself/himself to the hospital.
  • My computer shut itself down.
  • To one person - The coffee machine is on the table. Please help yourself.
  • To a group of people - The coffee machine is on the table. Please help yourselves.
  • Why can't we do it ourselves?
  • Sisters are doing it for themselves.

!Note - "by myself" is a lonely way of doing things.
