    Question Can I repeat the same word two times in a sentence?

    ...this is the reason why I blame myself about it and keep on promising myself that will find a solution to improve the situation.

    OR

    ...this is the reason why I blame and keep on promising myself that will find a solution to improve the situation.

    Does it sound natural in EN if I repeat the same word two times? It sounds a bit weird to me, but the secon example does not sound correct either.

    Would be nice if someone could help me.

    thank you

    I prefer the repetition of "myself".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
