Wikilengua suggests you could use both, but sometimes only one! wikilengua.org/index.php/Interrogaci%C3%B3n

comment Word usage: serme
Finger trouble with cut and paste! "Este año he decidido ser fiel a mí misma y no mentirme" As per your original sentence.

comment Word usage: serme
@ Cadenza : I can't find any examples of it being used either. But I can't see what else they could have meant. Was it from an old book? It certainly appears superfluous as "Este año he decidido ser fiel a mí mismo y no mentirme a mí misma." would mean the same.

comment Difference between “oeste” and “occidente”
I also see levante (E) and poniente (W) used to denote different parts of towns. (eastern Spain - Valencia region). Note that these are nouns whereas oeste / este can be used as adjectives western / eastern

@Cadenza "Most of the glasses shattered (or broke)". Sorry, my layout could have been better. Not sure where you are, but here in Spain a cup is usually "taza". Wine glass with stem "copa". Ordinary glass "vasa".
