I'm a shy guy and this took me 3 years to muster the courage. She always flirts with me and touches me but she said no and said she considered me as a brother and a very nice person. I feel very down because i loved her for a long time and i really did think she liked me :( My confidence is really down and i was asking if someone can help.

If she flirted with you you might not be wrong, but she might have something else going on right now. Who knows. Gather more information.
I feel your pain on the pining for years thing. That shit sucks. Try not to do it if at all possible. Any possible way you can convince yourself to make subtle, civilized, but intent-signalling moves earlier on when a girl catches your eye, DO it. Then the stakes don't get a chance to get so high. There, I just compressed six years of talk therapy into a paragraph for you. :)
Meantime, work on making yourself interesting - hobbies, teams, activities etc. Even if it's weird and different, like writing code instead of picking up guitar, etc.2
