Synonyms of "Own" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between To each his own and It depends on him ?
A: To each his own means everyone has different taste. It depends on him means the decision or choice is for him to choose. Ask me more if this isn't clear enough.
Q: What is the difference between on my own and for oneself ?
A: If you are doing something "on your own," you are doing it without help from other people.

If you are doing something "for yourself," you are doing it because it is good for you (for your benefits).
Q: What is the difference between by oneself and for oneself and on one's own ?
A: I think if you think about it as yourself instead of oneself it might be a bit clearer.

Can you wear your shoes by yourself? (The ability to do it on your own)

Can you work hard for yourself? (Because you want it, you should work hard)

On your own is rather similar to by yourself. Can you drive on your own? (The ability to do something as well)
Q: What is the difference between on my own and by my own ?
A: "By my own" is incorrect. I've never used it. You were probably thinking of "On my own" and "by my self/myself." The prepositions "by" and "on" are simply idiomatic, so you have to memorize them. These two are usually interchangeable, but sometimes the meanings differ. Here's an example: "I live on my own." 
Q: What is the difference between on one's own and by oneself and alone ?
A: On one's own:
I will do it on my own. (자력으로, 혼자서, 스스로) (using one's own power or ability)

By oneself:
I will do it by myself. (홀로, 혼자로, 자기로) (without other people's help)

Alone:
I will do it alone. (혼자로)(just as one, 다른사람없이, 혼자힘으로)

"By oneself" and "alone" are virtually the same. However, "alone" can also mean
