Having a chat with a professional would allow you to go into it further. Giving a more fulsome answer here is going to be based only on what you have said so far.
If you decide not to see someone then you might like to consider the following.
While you may know these things a reminder doesn't hurt and hearing them may touch a chord in you that will be helpful.
1 What we think of ourselves is due to the decisions we make about ourselves.
It's the old sticks and stones. If somone speaks ill of us we can remind ourselves how worthy and special we are.
2 Relationships can go through hell and high water and still survive, but a relationship like that will be built on solid foundations like mutal respect. You might ask yourself how you picture your relationship down the track when your memory will still contain the nastiness you are experiencing.
3 We have the opportunity to meet so many people in our lives and we can decide not to be around those that don't support us. Imagine you have circles of associates, including friends, work mates, relatives etc. Imagine they support you, are affectionate to you, give you understanding when you make mistakes, love you even when things are difficult and give you a non judgemntal audience when you need it. Letting go of people who don't fit this picture can be a brave and wonderful thing for you to do, for you.
And you are worth it.
Recovery will involve time and that can be spent with friends; with yourself, flying solo for a while - which can actually be fun and doing things like meditation can be really helpful.
