Hi Sister Abril. Thanks for your message. If I understand correctly, this young man lives near you and has returned from his mission.

If you've repented of your past sins, other people shouldn't judge you for them. As long as you've taken the time and made the effort required to fully apply Christ's atonement in your life, God figuratively remembers your sin no more. If even God has forgiven you for your sins, other people shouldn't hold them against you.

I hope this answer helps. All the best.
