    I don't walk "alone"

    Can you explain to me what's the difference between: "alone", "by my own" and "by myself"?
    Thank you for your help.
    bye,
    Luigi

    Unnecessary
    "By my own" is incorrect. It's "on my own" or "by myself".

    There is really little difference between them in many contexts but in some, only one (or two) of them work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
