It represents a location of a thing or things.
If the thing is near then use this or these.

Reflexive Pronouns (or Intensive)
Example: I enjoyed myself.
You should trust yourself.

The people enjoyed themselves.
Reflexive Pronouns are placed near the subject and refer ("reflect") back to the subject of a sentence.
Intensive Pronouns are the same words but are placed right near the subject.
An Intensive Pronoun is not essential to the meaning of a sentence but adds emphasis to a statement. If you remove the intensive pronoun from a sentence, it still makes sense.
I myself got very upset.
You yourself are a lazy worker!
The president himself donated some money.
The actress herself showed me the book.
