I scared myself

Hey, please what's the difference between "Je m'ai fait peur" and "Je me suis fait peur"? Which is more correct and why? Especially since faire is conjugated with avoir in passé composé.

Je me fais peur. -- I scare myself
Je me suis fait peur. -- I scared myself

Note that in passé composé with reflexive pronouns (me), the auxiliary verb is always être. Therefore, je m'ai fait peur is incorrect.
