"Deal with it" as a complete sentence would work wonders there.

"4. To come to terms with; to overcome any difficulties presented by."


Put up with something/somebody
Cambridge Dictionary defines it as:

put up with sth/sb
:to accept or continue to accept an unpleasant situation or experience, or someone who behaves unpleasantly

-I can put up with the house being messy, but I hate it if it's not clean.
-He's so moody - I don't know why she puts up with him.
-They have a lot to put up with (= they have a lot of difficulties).

MW (intransitive verb -put up with) also defines it as:

to endure or tolerate without complaint or attempt at reprisal

-You will have to put up with him.
