I saw this expression here: Parenting beta

i'm grew up myself

I am raised me myself

on spanish is :

Crecí yo mismo

Me crié yo mismo

I am try said that "myself i grew up alone without parents , that myself made my future all and I was independent"

i would like explain thing similar but I would like sound like american people from US.

what example are more common in US people?


Both your sentences are grammatically incorrect.

You could say something like

I grew up on my own without parents


I was raised by myself/grandmother, etc.

    +1. But you should say Both your sentences rather than Your both sentences. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 19 '18 at 10:53

Well, I'm Spanish too but ...

I think that you've got a pair of errors in your initial expressions. The correct tense is simple past.

I grew up on my own.
I was raised by none but me. (To offer a different sentence from the one pointed by @Maryam)

I'm not sure if you can use "raised by myself". It sounds strange in Spanish too: me crie a mi mismo.

In relation with the rest of your enquire, let me show you an interesting adjective

self-made (US)

successful as a result of your own effort:
a self-made man/woman

    +1 for I grew up on my own. on my own is truly idiomatic. by none but me however is stilted. That is not likely to be said by any contemporary speaker. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 19 '18 at 10:46
  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo Well, to be fair, I don't deserve it. I alredy knew that expression but I have taken that part from Maryam's answer. You should upvote her – RubioRic Jun 19 '18 at 10:49

The simplest idiomatic statement using raise is

I raised myself.

Another variant using grow:

I grew up on my own.
