The Politics of Relationships

One of the hardest lessons to learn is that no one can "make you" feel bad about yourself:  you have a choice about whether to take other people's disparagement to heart.

Having said this, I also acknowledge that it is terribly demoralizing to have an advisor who runs you down.

If you feel up to it (and this is a very delicate judgment call) you might decide to take your advisor on.
