I look at myself in the mirror.
Reflexive pronouns are used when the complement of the verb is the same as the subject.
He hurt himself.
Reflexive pronouns can also be used to give more emphasis to the subject or object.
I wrote it myself. (I want to emphasize the fact that I wrote it.)
I spoke to the president himself. (I spoke to the president personally NOT somebody else.)
The words " myself, yourself, himself..." are reflexive pronouns. Reflexive pronouns are words that show that the person who does the action is also the person who is affected by it:
Subject Pronouns I you he she it we you they Reflexive Pronouns myself yourself himself herself itself ourselves yourselves themselves
"I always do my homework myself. Nobody helps me."
"He never does his homework himself. The teacher always helps him."
