It’s none of your business
What other people think about you is out of your control.
What other people say about you, is really none of your business. If they’re talking about you, it means your talk worthy, which is already far better than being ignored, right?

….they have to talk about you. Because when they talk about themselves, nobody listens.— Bonang B* Matheba (@bonang_m) June 9, 2016
The only person whose opinion about yourself you should care about is your own. If you are happy with your performance, your attitude, and your actions then that’s all that matters. Other people are always going to think what they want to
It’s a reflection of them, not of you.
Of course the same goes for you, so listen to what you say about other people. What does it say about you?
