it should make you feel better knowing that someone cares about you
i usually pretend like i don't like it.. and inside sometimes i do and sometimes i don't.
It's nice to know someone at least cares enough to make the gesture. Make/Take of it what you will.
If there's nothing they can do, the important thing is that they're listening in the first place. Doesn't really matter what they say.
it makes me feel so much happier when someone offers help like they can make it right because they take away the pain and they let me know they care and are there for me.
