      ask yourself that:

      don't you want your oponents to make this sort of calls.

      remember there is a part of luck in poker so you have to take into account variance. Poker is a long term game. when something like that happens reload take a note on the player and go get your money back. just dont tilt so dont change your game because of a lost but adapt your game to that opponent.

      you should be happy of bad beats. just keep a good brm and every thing is fine

      Just without this, simply because money you lost aren't yours anymore.
      Getting money back - this isn't a good long-term decision making attitude.
      This way of thinking leads to tilts.
      Just make as many good decisions you can.
