I'm Stressed By Being Nurturing To Others

Seems like I have quite a few people in my life who turn to me for emotional support and counsel. I think I would really like to be the type of person who is good a giving advice and can cheer anyone up who's feeling blue, but I'm starting to notice that every time I do I feel emotionally spent and exhausted. I think having to "play nice" and make myself understanding and patient with other people when they're in a delicate state just might be spending more emotional energy and knowledge than I actually have. How do i stop this weird cycle I've found myself in? And. . .yeah I'm pretty sure this makes me an *******?
