listen my friend. I just turned 20 and I learned to deal with that kind of issue years ago.

First, cut all the emotional connections.

second, learn to distract your mind to something else when that happens.

third, or you can just move out.

or better yet, you can talk it out and tell her it really hurts and makes you want to cry when she does that and tell her to stop being mean because you love her.

Yes, this is called verbal abuse. The only way to stop it is to first tell her that you do not tolerate her hurtful words, such as insulting, guilting, belittling, etc. If she continues, refuse to listen to her and walk away / hang up the phone. You need to set boundaries (you are 24), and if she doesn't respect that as an adult to another adult then she needs to know that you refuse to play her game by just walking away from that situation.
