What do you call a good quality that becomes a flaw in excess?

There's a specific term. I think its two words and has a basis in literature. Sort of like Achilles Heel, except that's something slightly different.

Examples:

I'm so focussed that I get distracted from important issues.

I'm trust so easily, that I get myself into trouble.

Thanks in advance.
