    Use I as a subject, me as an object. Use myself as a reflexive pronoun.
    • I did it.
      She helped me.
      I did it myself.


    Use me as the object of a preposition.
    • Is this for me?
      Let's keep this between you and me.


    Do not use me as a subject. Always use I.
    • Sharon and I went there together.
      Bob and I went to the football game.


    Use myself to refer back to the subject. Note its similarity to himself and herself.
    • Bob did it himself. He didn't have any help.
      Sharon has been talking to herself.
      I caught myself talking to myself.
