The 'if you gave in' part sounds like you don't "want" to do something but you're doing it. Why would you do what you do not want to do? You also said you're 'refusing to accept'- if you're not accepting of it, why would you do it? I don't get it, sorry
A person would obviously not want
to do something they don't want to do. But said person might
consider doing it anyway if they thought that it was the only feasible path forward.
IOW, a person might compromise if they come to the conclusion that they have just been being stubborn for it's own sake and it has cost them far more than it was ever worth and they realize it was a foolish waste and they just didn't want to admit it.
To say a person has been (past tense) refusing to accept does not mean they cannot choose to accept in the future. Which was the reason for the question. And also the reason for the "IF". So, a question that says "Will you enjoy your day more tomorrow if the weather is better?" means the weather might change tomorrow. And IF
it does, will that change your state of mind? There is nothing in there that says the weather has to be
the same tomorrow as it was yesterday just because it was what it was yesterday.
So, a person (often) eventually comes to a self-imposed impasse that must be resolved in some fashion. And generally, the only way out of it is whatever that person has been avoiding through their own "code".
