Insults are really only effective to the extent that they're believed.  If your boss is an abusive jerk, analyse what he has to say; fix what needs fixing; carry out substantive instructions, and ignore the rest; but don't take any of it personally.  But you might also want to carefully document your work and otherwise not give anybody any just cause to punish you.  And if you come to the conclusion that the workplace culture is hopelessly dysfunctional, then you should be actively seeking other employment (to include self-employment, where feasible).
