    Your means something belonging to you.

    You're is a contraction meaning YOU ARE.

    Your, You're

    your – possessive, the thing belonging to you. See how it ends in “our”? Use that as a reminder. When it belongs to us, it's our thing. When it belongs to you, it's your thing.

    you're – a contraction of the words “you are”. The apostrophe is your signal that the word can be split into two words.

    Your is possive, meaning you have or own something. You're is a contraction, meaning "you are.'
