    myself

    I wonder if "1" and "2" have the same meaning.
    If so, I would like to know which sentence is correct among "3" and "4".
    1. I felt sorry for myself(,) being home alone on christmas day.
    2. I felt sorry for myself as I was home alone on christmas day.
    3. I felt sorry for myself being home alone on christmas day.
    4. I felt sorry for myself, being home alone on christmas day.
