Bad beats of bad beats!

I'm all behind the fact that i've changed my stype of play, but sometimes this game is just cruel!

Trying to get back on my feet and then I get riverred again in the most viscious of ways!!

$1.50 SNG table, nothing fancy, had a view narrow losses and sitting on 1k stack, wanting to take a punt I called a meesley 100 with As5s.

The flop gave me 7s4sAh, so top pair, flush draw, I was feeling good. Betting 200 I was raised to 400, I did consider stopping but called none the less.

The turn card 8s. Flush secure I bet all in, receiving a call. He sat with 77, trips.

River card. 7!........ 7........a damn 7.............

It's all just bad luck, but my share of this standard of luck is becoming ridiculous.
