You are smarter than a 2 year old. You should be able to figure out how to avoid power struggles, at least almost all the time. Here is a famous article about saying no to toddlers and rething what we are doing:
The average toddler hears no 400 times a day!!! With my 20 mo grandson we save no and stop for important or emergency type situations like running into the street. Because we have done that no and stop are effective. Even if you are very skilled at parenting there may be "issues". My grandson didn't want to take a Star Wars shirt for 3 days and screamed when I took it off.
