Reflexive pronouns can function as an object. Object / person in the object is a person / object with the same subject. example: I think I need to love myself. I do not want to love others more or less than myself.
<ul><li>Verbs (verb) and phrases (phrases) which are usually followed by reflexive pronoun (in this example we use a reflexive pronoun yourself which of course can be replaced with another): believe in yourself Blame yourself cut yourself enjoy yourself Feel sorry for yourself </li></ul>
Reflexive pronouns can also be used to give emphasis to the subject. In this sense the reflexive pronoun is placed just after the subject. example: I myself cooked it = I cooked it myself.
<ul><li>By + reflexive pronoun means alone. </li></ul><ul><li>John sat by himself on a bench of the park. = John sat alone on a bench of the park. </li></ul><ul><li>She lives by herself. = She lives alone </li></ul>
