How do I get someone to see that what they do does help, and it does mean a lot to me?
I know he's probably going to read this, but I need some help and I don't know what to do. He always helps me out and is always there for me when I need someone, there's not always something to physically do, but just being around him helps. Let's me know I'm not alone and someone is there to help me if I need it. That means the world to me, I've had no one for most of my life and to just have *someone* means everything, but he doesn't feel like he's doing anything to help. What do I do? I've tried to tell him, but he blows it off as just sentimental value; like it doesn't mean anything. How do I make him feel like he really is helping me? I try to thank him for always being there, but it kind of hurts when he blows it off and insists he didn't do anything and should have done something... I don't know what to do.... Help?
