Our expert says:
You sound like a nice person --- wish I ha someone like that as a neighbour ! There's absolutely nothing wrong with helping other people, even if it's becoming a rather rare behaviour. And to feel satisfied for having been helpful, even to feel good about yourself for having done so --- is normal and healthy. What, should you feel disgusted with yourself for having done something good ?
As Maria says, so long as that self-satisfaction isn't the absolutely sole and only motivation --- actually, come to think of it --- when I need help, I need it amd I'm grateful for it --- why would I be bothered if the person feels good about doing it ? Its a lot better than the folks min "helping " jobs who seem to resent you and hate their work.
In think what liar is referring to is that some people have a compulsion, not to be helpful as such, but to please other people --- to please everyone all the time. This is more undesirable ( as well as impossible ).
