What is differences between justify-content, justify-item, and justify-self?

So I kind of understand those but not quite clearly. Can anyone explain what is differences between them?

Justify-content is flexbox specific and applied to a flex container. You declare how the flex items within that container will be aligned along the main axis.

Justify items is applied to a container and has the below effects:

In block-level layouts, it aligns the items inside their containing block on the inline axis.

For absolutely-positioned elements, it aligns the items inside their containing block on the inline axis, accounting for the offset values of top, left, bottom, and right.

In table cell layouts, this property is ignored

In flexbox layouts, this property is ignored

In grid layouts, it aligns the items inside their grid areas on the inline axis

Justify self removes the item justifying itself from the default of its container(see above).
