How Do I Overcome Abuse When Making Dawah?

Asalamu Alaikum, I am a person who makes dawah in the US. And I am getting burnt out. So many people are full of hate and ignorance and say horrifying things to me that I could never have imagined would come out of a person’s mouth. I know that Allah says in the Quran to not let their words grieve you. But I just don't know how to do that. I am depressed and anxious and very grieved by the things non-Muslims say in ignorance about Islam and the Muslims and even the threats they make. How do I not let this affect me? Please help.
