In this world there will always be people that try to bring you down and say negative things about you, sometimes you can have conversations with them, sometimes not. Some people are just unhappy and there is nothing you can do about that. You have two choices. Invest the time and energy to go after them and retaliate, or take the energy that they invest into trying to bring you down and re-purpose that energy to accomplish something you want to get done.
You don’t need to hate people back or wish ill on them, ignore them.
Don’t bother wasting your time and energy on negativity, instead keep building upwards with the people that support you while looking down at the people that try to break you.
Think of these quotes!

“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us.” ~Hermann Hesse
“So many people dwell on negativity and I’ve survived by ignoring it: it dims your light and it’s harder each time to turn the power up again.” ~Judith Jamison
