“Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld and Practicing Me, Myself and I

Posted on Oct 6 2015 - 11:00am by PopESL

Do you love the feel good song “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld? She preaches about loving yourself when she sings,

(I love me)
Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
Gonna love myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
(I love me)
Can’t help myself, no, I don’t need anybody else
Anytime, day or night
(I love me)

So to celebrate the idea of loving yourself let’s practice using me, myself and I in English.

Here are some quick tips:

Use I for the subject and me for the object in a sentence.

Many native speakers mix up me and I.  However there’s still a simple way to decide which to use. Try out the sentence with just I or me (or if you need a plural, we or us) and whichever is correct in that scenario will be the correct version with them added in.

Use myself to refer to the subject of the sentence (it’s a reflexive pronoun). It’s normally used when you have already referred to yourself as “I” in the sentence.

Don’t use a subject pronoun and object pronoun in the same sentence.

Choose the correct word below. Good luck!

The DJ played ____ the song.
I took _____ to Europe.
Can you give _____ the book?
There are many questions I ask _____.
_____ want a makeover.
He told ____ that he will come to the party.
_____  liked my own Instagram photo.
He and _____ are in love.
She gave the puppy to my sister and _____.
My friend and ____ are living together.
