My brother and me ran outside and sat in the grass while ourselves waited for my dad. Suddenly, the car pulled into the driveway. It was him!

It is used when the subject and object of a sentence refer to the same person or thing. • Do not use a reflexive pronoun in place of a personal pronoun. Do not add -self or -selves to a subject pronoun. Always check your writing to make sure you did not use a reflexive pronoun instead of an object pronoun. The song will be sung by the choir and me.
