Min/mitt/mina can mean "my" as well as "mine". In Swedish you conjugate the possessive pronouns based on the gender and number of the main word.

Min stol. = My chair. / Stolen är min. = The chair is mine. (en stol)

Mitt jobb. = My job. / Jobbet är mitt. = The job is mine. (ett jobb)

Mina stolar och mina jobb. = My chairs and my jobs. / Stolarna och jobben är mina. = The chairs and the jobs are mine. (plural, en and ett doesn't matter)

it depends on the type of word, are you aware of en and ett words, as well as plurals?
