Trouble understanding when to use Issa, iksan,iksi, iksat,issi

So, I understand what they are but, I'm trying to lock them into my mind but I feel like they change depending on what comes before it. Does that make any sense? I'm really having trouble learning them and placing them properly

It's like conjugation, I believe. just like in English there is 'am' for I, 'are' for you, ect. So it depends on the person, iksan is I believe only 1st person singular, so the same as 'am' in English. If that makes sense to you.

So, to put it into a more easily understandable form (or, in order):

Iksan- I am iksaa - you are (singular) issa - he/she/it is

iksi - we are iksaat - you are (plural) issi - they are

It changes depending on what comes before it, because you are reffering to that thing. issa- Is,It is so

issi- They are (referring to other people) (plural)

iksi- We are, are (referring to yourself and others) (plural)

iksan- I am (referring to yourself) (singular)

iksat- You all are, You are (referring to other people, I'm not sure if it's plural or singular but its used to refer to another person)

Just like how in English you wouldn't say, "They are red," when referring to an apple, you would say "It is red."
