i don't get why people will put yo me voy but it doesnt mean "i myself go" its not reflexive but i learned that if you put me, te, or se infront of the verb it makes it reflexive

You learned wrong. "se" is used in reflexive constructions but also in many other non-reflexive ways. - samdie, ENE 18, 2010

or like when people say "se puede" for you can why can't they just put puede, why do you need the se

"se puede" is simply an "impersonal" construction much like "one can" / "you can" to indicate what is possible / can be done. Nothing reflexive about it. - samdie, ENE 18, 2010

Me voy is essentially "I'm out" if it was translated into the closest slang. It is saying that you are leaving without any specifics about where you are going. The dictionary has a number of uses for the reflexive of ir (toward the bottom of the page):

  • To go, to go off or go away (marcharse), to depart or remove from a place.
  • To be dying.
  • To go off, to go out of life, to be gone (morir).
  • To leak (recipiente), to ooze.
  • To exhale, to evaporate.
  • To discharge wind.
  • To break: to grow old.

I'm not why someone would put the "yo" in there as well. Isn't it fairly unnecessary?
