Suppose two persons from different countries are talking with each other.
How can I combine the following two sentences
"I fight for myself. You fight for yourself."
... and make a single sentence without changing the meaning?
- (?) Both I and you fight for ourselves.
- (?) Both I and you fight for themselves.
- (?) Both I and you fight for oneself.
Logically the first sentence seems to work, but on second thought I feel it looks like "you" are betraying his/her country and fighting for "my" country... Is this the case?
Modifying a little bit using "each", "respectively" or something like that will help?
If I give up using this structure, what is the best way to simply describe this idea?
