Spanish reflexive pronoun
A reflexive pronoun indicates that the action of a verb is performed by the same person it affects: the subjects are doing something to themselves or to each other.
For example, in I shave myself, I is both the person doing the action and the person it is done to.

Reflexive pronouns are mainly used to express 'self' as part of a pronominal verb (which may be reflexive or reciprocal).
Yo me levanto
I get up.
Tú te duchas.
You have a shower.
Él se afeita.
Reflexive pronouns are also used to express reciprocity:
Ellos se aman
They love each other.
Vosotras os miráis.
You look at each other.
