Can shame be a circumstance?


I have noticed that shame is a dominant feeling that I have. Can shame be the C since it seems to be one of my dominant feelings? I have noticed this pattern of thinking that I need to earn love and I am responsible for fixing everyone else’s problems. I have always taken on and internalized the blame if someone is unhappy or things go wrong. I assume it is my fault and my whole self worth is based on me fixing it. If I don’t think that I have done that I shame myself and assume they don’t love or value me anymore. Not really sure how to model it.
