Sometimes I feel it's my responsibility to help someone out of a jam that they created themselves; fixing something someone else broke. Feeling guilty for something someone else said. I don't know if this is because I'm a caring, helpful person or a complete nut in need of some intense counseling. Your take?

Sounds like you know something about gratitude. I wonder how many things blow right by us because we look at them as entitlements instead of recognizing blessings for what they are? They are uncountable.
Sounds like you don't feel you deserve respect and kindness. You do! Maybe consider consulting a coach or a counsellor because ongoing unhealthy relationships are seriously bad for your health. I speak from personal experience.
Don't change. But, if you repeatedly do this expecting positive results, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. The one reward you can count on is that you will feel good about yourself.
I won't. I had a lot of people reach out when I reached my alcoholic bottom. I was broke, dirty,unemployed, and basically spiritless. Now I do well because of them. Paying it forward is how I stay that way.Helping is a privilege. Thanks, Eric.
We aren't responsible for other peoples happiness, however we can be there for them as a good friend and sometimes good friends point out the other persons foibles that keep getting them into problems.
Well, that's your family. When you are lucky enough to have and keep a family, it's a privilege to have them to worry about. We all love feeling needed.
I was referring to my whole family IDONO. Not only my immediate family.
