I had always viewed my relationships with the younger girls in young life as being primarily one-way, me pouring into them and being their friend, but not vis-versa. I made a pretty clear distinction between my relationships with them, and friendships. In their eyes, I am their friend, but they are not mine. They looked up to me, a lot. And I wanted our times together to be about them, not me. But in this moment, where Maya so passionately wanted me to open up, I realized the power of vulnerability.
