Hi, Thuận Sarzynski

Let me see if this helps:

Joanna Wood, professor of psychology at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, found that people with low self-esteem felt worse when asked to repeat this statement: I am a loveable person. Why? Because the statement was completely at odds with how they actually felt about themselves.

Many experts suggest that with enough repetition, we can change anything about ourselves. But if your core belief is at odds with the affirmation, you might be unintentionally nudging yourself to find reasons why you’ll never reach what your affirmations are focused on.
