Does saying positive things and writing down affirmations truly help?

I am always on a mood roller coaster. Sometimes I am excited and happy, other times I am just numb. I am a person who lives in the extremes. Someone suggested that I should write down or listen to positive affirmations every day and see how it all manifests in my life. The universe truly listen, they said. I have been doing that on and off, and sometimes when the mood is way off, it gets difficult to read the affirmations and believe in them. Because honestly the heaviness of the emotions mostly outweighs the positive outlook.

But slowly, affirmations have become a habit now. I try to read or write one every day and I don’t know if the universe is listening, I am doing it for a minute of positivity and balance.

I am one of those people who at the end of the day wants to do better the next day. I don’t give up, no matter what hardships come in life. I always want to move ahead and change my perspective into a positive one. And this never giving up attitude has always brought wonderful times in my life.

So, I don’t know what the universe is manifesting for me. I am manifesting things for myself and the daily affirmations are the window that brings the light of hope into my life.
