I used to do this all the time, especially if I was aware that there was some element of true in the comment, even though I knew it was a destructive thing to do, I just didn't seem to be able to separate my feelings, hurt and upset from the comment.
The more this happened the more negative comments, low emotions and bad energy I absorbed like a sponge soaking up water from a dripping tap, until you reach the point of overflow and trust me being overfilled with bad energy, low vibrations and negativity is not a place you want to go!
So what happened when I reached this overfilled state? My body physically crashed and I literally was too ill and weak to get out of bed. It lasted for months and it wasn't the first time this had happened to me, and each time it reoccurred it seemed to be worse, more severe and harder to recover from. So my advice is don't go there! Don't take on board all the negative comments said to you or in your environment, because they really are not serving you at all.
I read a quote, that really is so so true:-
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
Whenever anyone says anything to us we do have a choice - whether to accept that comment into our energy field and feel the emotions that it brings up in us or whether to reject it and choose to love ourselves and support ourselves.
So whenever someone says something to you, especially when it is negative or hurtful then ask yourself, is this true? If it isn't true then let it go instantly and tell yourself this is not true I repel this comment from my energy field.
If the comment has some truth in it, then ask is this comment caring and supportive? which it obviously isn't or you wouldn't be upset! So take the truth from the comment and then use that truth to support yourself and move your life forwards in a positive way.
