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

I walked the dog. She gave the ball to me.

The same rule applies when we add extra people to the sentence.

 Jane and I walked the dog.
 She gave the ball to Jane and me.

The easiest way to see if you’re using the correct pronoun is to remove ‘Jane’ and see what pronoun is left.

myself
Myself is a reflexive pronoun, so use it to refer back to the subject of the sentence.

I gave myself a bunch of flowers for my birthday.

Do not use myself as a substitute for I or me. For instance, don’t say:

Please send the book to myself. (wrong)
Please send the book to me. (correct)
