What's the best way to respond when being insulted by someone who likes to put others down?

Flower7
I have a person like this in my life who likes to be negative and try to make others feel bad about themselves. This is a constant thing with this person.

When I try to defend myself or tell them that what they're saying about me isn't true, it turns into an argument. How should I handle situations like this? I've had problems with my temper in the past and don't want to get triggered into acting out of character.

So basically, how can I defend myself without getting into an argument and also without allowing myself to be disrespected?
