Well, I'm not the most selfless person, but I also have trouble with those sorts of boundaries. It's difficult for me to listen to others' problems without feeling responsible for fixing it-- especially family members. My T has tried to explain to me how the goal is to be empathetic, but not take on the moods of others, and not feel responsible for fixing them. I'm not sure I really get how to be open enough, but not too open. I tend to be either too open or too closed. Rather than oversaturating myself as you describe I tend to isolate myself as a way to stay safe. Someday I hope to find the happy medium.
