"The person who cannot be pleased is the same person who has little gratitude for what they do have because they always focus on what they don’t have and what they don’t have is distorted anyway because they never acknowledged and appreciated what they do have and the efforts of others in the first place.

Stop trying to be perfect in the hope that they’ll cut you some slack – cut yourself some slack!
It’s a sign of our maturity as adults when we don’t treat people like servants to cater to our every whim and when we take responsibility for asserting and meeting our own needs, wishes, and expectations. I know that it was part of my ascent into being me when I stopped wanting or needing the approval of my mother because I prioritized my own approval which was no longer based on her approval. This immediately changed the nature of our relationship – adult to adult.
This is your life and it’s time to get on with the business of learning how to please you and meet your own needs – your role in life isn’t scapegoat or to be kicked to make someone else feel better about their own turmoil. Whether you devote your life to an Unpleasable or choose to step into your own life, they’re still not going to be pleased but only one of these options represents you being able to find your own happiness independently of their chaos. Choose wisely, choose you."
