It’s not easy to be told no about something really important to you. But, people are allowed to say no to you. You might protest, try to cajole and change their mind. At some point you just have to stop and accept it. It’s just a fact that in order for someone to get what they want, often, someone else has to give up or not get something they wanted. Give and take.
Write about being gracious, having style and accepting that which you can not have your own way.
