Then I just think about how lucky I got already and how it's normal that it happens for the others too.
After doing these three things, my mind is back on a relaxed state, I expressed the unfair feeling, accepted the fact that it's part of the game, then put a conclusion to it by remembering the fact that I won some hands thanks to luck too so I should just be thankful cause after all, it will happen to me again.
Very good answer!
I am reading "The Poker Mindset" at the moment and it says something along those lines except in far greater detail.
