That's the way the cookie crumbles

If someone says, "that's the way the cookie crumbles," they
mean that you have to accept the way things have happened, even.
if they haven't worked out as you wanted.

Example:
"But that's not fair! They got three goes and I only got two!"
"That's the way the cookie crumbles. Don't worry. Next time you might
get the extra go.
