People-pleasing looks like saying “yes” to everything or being the person who’s always there for anything that’s needed.
People-pleasing comes from codependency dynamics—where we gain our sense of self through what other people think of us. This usually means having no boundaries and neglecting our own needs in the process.
On today’s episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, we are resharing a solo episode with Dhru where he talks to us about how to stop being a chronic people-pleaser.
In this episode we dive into:

- How to break free from people-pleasing
- Why you have a difficult time saying no
