Why does she not give up on her personality even if she goes through really bad situations?
Could it be because of her determination to help her friends who undergo worse situations? Especially Sayaka - when your best friend is slowly going down, you either try to snap her out of it or take a fetal position and mutter something about being helpless. Thankfully, Madoka is no Shinji.
Of course, by discussing this, we already deal with the motivation behind her actions in the anime that stem from her personality while you raised the question of the motivation behind the personality itself. But character ontology is hard to trace definitely. Having a normal family does not always result in someone like Madoka, but it surely was a factor. Madoka's looking up to her mother and wanting to be useful may be another. But we simply lack info on her background to judge how exactly she grew up to be like this.
