I Think I feel Too Guilty About Hurting People?

I think i have a problem of worrying too much about how other people feel and how they are affected by my decisions.

I know it is good to try and not hurt people but i often find myself feeling guilty that i have really hurt someone when i make a decision, in certain cases.

For example, i am going away to college soon and i feel bad that my family is going to have to deal with me moving out. I have no other choice but to move away(or not go to school at all) and yet i feel bad. Another example is with my job. I took a job a few weeks ago at a large retail store and i told my boss that i was going to be around in the fall, however, i am really going to quit in a few weeks. For some reason i feel really bad about it. It won't really affect him in any way and yet i feel bad.

Is this normal or is there something that i should do?
