There is some debate as to whether or not using positive affirmations incorrectly can have negative consequences. Some people believe that if you use positive affirmations in a way that is untrue or inconsistent with your beliefs, it can actually have a negative effect on your psyche.
Others believe that the only potential downside to using positive affirmations is that they might not work for everyone. If you don’t truly believe in the affirmation you’re saying, it may be less effective than if you do believe in it. However, there is no real evidence to suggest that using positive affirmations incorrectly can have any harmful effects on your mind or body.
