Do some people just push your buttons?
If someone is pushing your buttons, it means there is a button to push. Think about why what they said bothered you so much, and then you can eliminate that within yourself.
If someone insults you, you can only feel insulted if somewhere inside, you believe it's true. If you feel slighted, someone else got more praise or attention than you for a job or an effort..were you only making that effort for appreciation, or were you genuinely just doing your best?
Removing your buttons will stop their effect not only from that one person, but from anyone who tries to push them in the future.
They just won't be there to push!
