“Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” is a conditional truth. If you allow someone to say something about you that is destructive and designed to tear you down, and you don’t challenge it mentally, emotionally, and possibly physically, you have allowed it to hurt you by stunting your personal growth and dimming the light you could be to the world.

Never say anything about yourself you do not want to come true.
