I don`t mean bad beats as such

In essence once you have a lot more tournies etc under your belt you'll gradually become less and less bothered by the bad beats, because you'll see them so often, and accept them as simply 'inevitable'. Eventually you barely notice them (well, almost )
I think sometimes u become anxious. U know the thing, u never catch the flop when u bet, u catch the nuts when u fold, u sit forever trying to play tight and get nothing.
I generally don`t go on tilt after a bad beat, I accept that. I sat earlier today in a SNG. First few hands like AK, AQ I didnt hit flop but other guys did major style. Then, on bb I got ATs and A8s, I only had to call twice the big blinds and the pot odds
were there, but because I was catching nothing at all I fold and flop shows ATT and flush.
I am well passed my pocket AA being broken by 76s and the guy hits his straight.
Am I perhaps unusual this way?
