Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm in a relationship, and I really want people to trust me. That doesn't seem so hard, since I'm actually a good person, but somehow, I still constantly get talks from old people near daily reminding me to behave, and all kinds of abstract reminders about the law of chastity. I don't mind that, I really don't, but I'm very committed to those principles anyway, and it always sort of bothers me to be reminded so often not to do something that I was very motivated not to do. It's like being told every time I go shopping not to shoplift. Is there any way I could convince someone that I'm actually really trustworthy?

A:

Dear you,

It's probably not that they don't trust you. It's just that some people only talk on autopilot. Or maybe it's a really dry, really bad joke.

I'd say try not to worry about it. You build trust with people by just being you, and if someone isn't picking up on that, it's their loss.

Dear you,

Maybe they do trust you. A personal example of this would be my father. My dad trusts me, but he'll still remind me to drive safe or hike safe, or stay in contact when I go on long trips, etc. He reminds me of the things that he wants for me. I don't know the people that you are around or that are saying this to you, but it could be that they are love you and want you to make the right choices so they keep telling you what they want for you. I don't know if this necessarily makes it less annoying, but I do think it is a possibility.

Congratulations on the relationship!
