The only reason i say Frank's answer is more "better" is because he explained it in simple terms. Many new beginners, even myself dont understand "first person possessive pronoun" it's a mouthful!

Thanks for the advice!

I agree with you that is extremally detailed, but I personally like this kind of answers because it can help in the future. And it can help others that may see this discussion. Since there was a simpler explanation, I took the liberty of giving one long and boring (and this is the kind of answer you get in highschool if you ask a portuguese teacher. Portuguese is a language with long and boring grammatical rules).
