Hey guys, what is a formal and colloquial way of saying these 2 phrases? so I have both sides of the spectrum, thanks :)

To push – in the sense of "we need something to push us to make a change" or " sometimes we need something to push us forward"


To put down. So say, you've just scored a goal and someone says…yeah mate but it was a dead goal, you might say "you are always putting me down"

Thank you guys.
