Am I Obsessed?

I'm always helping someone out one way or another. 

Little things like holding the door for someone, or letting the customer with just a few items go ahead of me in the line at the grocery store.  Most people will smile and say, "Thanks".  It lets me feel appreciated once in a while.

I can't walk through a store and see items on the floor without picking them up and putting them back on the shelf.  That one drives my old man nuts.

My problem is trying to help solve everyones problems.  According to my shrink, I'm directing my problems away from myself and concentrating on fixing others.  But I ask, how can you just walk away from someone who just wants to vent or a shoulder to cry on?  I'm just not that kind of person!
