The person may be feeling helpless in regards to trying to help you. One element of the card is that it usually pictures two people out in the snow, a woman and a man (at least). There can be, as said, a "team" feeling if both are going through the same troubles, but there can also be a feeling that they can't help each other and they want to.
It's hard when you're watching someone going through a difficult time; you go through it with them, out there in the snow, and you do your best to protect them, provide for them and get them through this difficult time. Yet you know that you haven't the power to really change the situation. That's pretty demoralizing.
I would say that however difficult a time you're having, you should reassure this person that they *are* helping and making things better. In times of trouble, we don't often tell such people how much they're doing for us, how they're helping us to survive this terrible time and continue on. We should, because otherwise we leave them wondering and worried, fearing that they're not good enough.
