Confused with 'me' in front of thing and reflective verbs, help?

I think it's if you put 'me' in front of it, it's because the object is 'myself' so you put me in front of it?

subject : it
verb : ...............................
object : myself

and with reflective

Subject ; I
verb : .....................
object : myself
because the subject and object is the same does this make it reflexive?

Am i right cos i am soooooo confused, i'm like a beginner only 13 :/ :thankyouu for help in advanced ;)

Yes, the reflexive object refers back to the same person as the subject. "I wake myself up. I wash myself. I dress myself." or "You found yourself in another unusual situation didn't you?" or "He hurt himself when he fell." In Spanish, there are more reflexive verbs than in English. Some verbs mean something completely different when reflexive than when not. Others simply require reflexive even though in English it is not reflexive. Here is a dictionary to check for many definitions of each word: http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-spanish/hurt http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-spanish/myself

A reflexive verb (which can be almost any verb) requires a subject. The subject goes in front of the verb, like me gusta. Who likes? I like. If you were to say something like "I love myself," you'd say "me amo." If you were to say I love you, you would say "te amo." the subjects that you would use in reflexive verbs are: Me Nos Te Os Le Se

If that didn't make sense to you, I'm sorry, it's how I learned it in school. Anyways, hope that helped, good luck in learning spanish! :)
