how to not care what local people think?

in essence, im a man in my 40s with mental health problems...when im in public i don't always get it right because i struggle with my composure, i can look agitated, annoyed, anxious, flustered/panicked, at any time.

and i get worried about what local people in the community think about me? do they think i'm a troubled loner man? somebody to avoid or poke fun at?

id hate to be thought of like that and i do care about people thinking that..

but how can i not care about it?

    I'm kind of the same way, except apparently my energy is bigger than that as people walk away from me. I ignore it, can't help it anyway. 

    You can always try controlling it but you'll get tired of it eventually
