How do you deal with negative things your boss says to you?

It depends. If I think it is constructive criticism, I take time to reflect. However, if it's just a mere snide remark, I just don't take it personally.

I just brush it off if it's more than just telling me to do the right thing. If there are already demeaning things said, then I take my stand

Ignore! If unbearable then approach his manager

Is it regarding your work or just negative in general. If it is regarding your work I would look at what I could do to better myself. If its just negative in general, I would ignore it personally.
