Ur friends, co-workers, and family members may use "ur" to stand for "your." Those same people may also use ur to stand for "you are," so it's not entirely ur fault that this abbreviation confused u.

Your is English's second-person possessive adjective, which denotes that the person you are talking to owns something. So, for example, when used to describe ur homework, ur heartbreak, and ur horses, ur means "your," and it denotes that you own some homework, heartbreak, and horses.

However, when used to describe the person ur talking to's actions, ur means "you are." For example, ur reading this sentence right now. English can be quite a confusing language, but don't worry. Ur initiative shows that ur sure to get the hang of it.
