I think in terms of "teachable moments." You are human, which means you will, at times, act in a way that you should objectively know is NOT the way to go. You already know that there was emotion behind playing that hand that led you to make a poor decision.
Think about how you were feeling when you pushed this hand. Think about why you were getting frustrated with this other player.
Remember that and recognize those feelings, so that when they happen again, you will know that this is a sign for you to back off, take a deep breath, a do what you know is best.
Hard? You bet. Getting good at poker is not just knowing how to play the cards, play the position, and play the other players. It is, in large part, knowing when you are on tilt and working to keep that from negatively influencing your game.
