Do Subs Have A Martyr Complex?

I was minding my own business today, thinking about breakfast and church (I guess those two go together ... lol), when suddenly I had the thought of doing something because it has to be done. Or because we said we would, whether we wanted to or not.
As submissives we often seek to serve others for their comfort, often sacrificing our own in the process. We tell ourselves that this us how we are and maybe even pride ourselves in the doing of it.
But, is this really done from a motivation of kindness, desire to serve, love for the other? Or do we do it sometimes from a misplaced martyr complex? I think I do have a martyr complex at times if I were to be honest about it, and I generally see that as unhealthy.
What about you? Do you think you might be motivated in your submission by a martyr complex? If so, how would you retrain yourself in proper submissive motivation?
