beware of rescuing

I was in a group therapy place recently, and one of the guidelines said:
"beware of rescuing."

Could someone explain that to me, please? Thank you all!
  • Some times when you are in the business of rescuing those you care about, you can end up enabling them to continue the habits that are perhaps ruining a family, a relationship, or their chances of growing up through going through failure.

    This is just a possibility.
