how do you deal with the paranoia that people are gossiping about you?

i'm male in my 40s and i get paranoid a lot, paranoid that people are talking about me, spreading false gossip where i live and now people have a false perception of me where i live.....this makes me angry when i have these paranoid thoughts.

how do i deal with it? i do notice people looking at me in public.

Update:

    I have been told by people saying "So and so is saying this or that behind your back". I would tell them "as long as their talking about me, their leaving somebody else alone".

    i live / i live / i live 3  times you didn't capitalize your I's and you have the gall to point out my mistake !!!  You also didn't capitalize your I  at the beginning of your statement. That makes #  4  i'm should be I'm.

    There’s a reason for it that you have to work out for yourself. So many things make you paranoid like drugs or guilt or an interest in conspiracies. You may also have a mental health issue.
