Default New to Limit - is this just a bad beat?

Ok, so I've moved from No-Limit to limit in an attempt to diversify my game. I was doing very well at first, quadrupling my winnings and feeling like I was playing excellent poker. HOwever, over the past 4 days have flushed all my winnings down the toilet on bad play coming as the result of horrible beats (tilting).

This is the culmination. Is there any other way to play this and not lose? I knew I was beat on the river but called just to feel further $2 worth of pain. I am "ME" in the game:

Hmm, you flopped the boat, he got runner runner boat to beat you. Yeah, sure, thats a bad beat. But what are you gonna do?

You still can't fold on that river though. You were smart and didn't raise and re-raise on a scary river like I see so many times at the lower limits. He just of easily could have had AA or something and couldn't let go of it.

Bad beat? Check.

River call? Correct.

Hand played well? you betcha. Love that reraise after the smooth call of the initial flop bet. And the raise on the turn. Got your money (and others') in with the best hand... and got smacked by lady luck on the river.

Well played, sorry about the result...

A flopraise would have been much better. No one with an overpair or nine is going away anyway.
You cannot know that it will get raised behind you. You got lucky there.

Anyways, I am very sure you didn't bleed your money away on hands like this one.
