Profiles - I'm now totally confused!

Can someone please explain or point me in the right direction for a simple solution to my query.

Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm trying to find out about profiles and how they should be used, but the more research I'm doing the more confused I'm getting.

So, I calibrate my monitor and create a profile, but now I'm starting to wonder why? What exactly is this achieving?

If I use my own printer, should I not be using the colour profile for that?

Then, If I send my images to an external printer, what profile should I be using?

When do I embed the profile?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
