my self vs. myself

my self
or myself

What is the correct usage of this word?
thank you in advance!:slight_smile:

Hi Maryjam,

It’s one word “myself”

like all reflexive pronouns:
Singular (yourself, himself, herself, itself)
Plural (ourselves, yourselves, themselves).

99.9% of the time, “my self” is a mistake for “myself”. However, it is not completely impossible for “my self” to be correct in the sense of “my being”, or “the thing that is me”.
