I have to agree with Phisix here, it's a really good move NOT to call with those cards!
Now, to the actual question, how would I feel? Well, I have folded pre-flop and would have actually floped a Royal Flush ones, that one did hurt quite a bit, but I knew that my fold was +EV in that situation so I was able to draw comfort from that and keep playing my A-game.
You need to keep in mind that ones you have folded your hand is completely irrelevant! It doesn't matter at all what you would have had, just move on and let it go. Most of the times when I fold a hand, I don't even bother watching the end of it, I just minimize the window and go on with doing whatever I was doing until the next hand.

Thank you guys! I feel much better now! Because when I saw the Straight Flush I felt bad. But these advices are really good. As erru said when I fold it is done. But I always have the habbit to see what will happen untill the river, even if I fold. I always watch it.
May be I shouldn't do it anymore (to watch the cards untill the river when I fold earlier). And I will be relaxed and to worry about what actually could happen.

Phisix said it right...u must rem many of the good hands in a game would have been beaten by the folded bad ones, it happens a lot with so many hands per min, so nothing to even bother yourself with, it was correct fold as poker hands go. we have all missed top hands and we go 'oh damn i had this i would of had that...this leads to more bad play as what is wishful thinking or chasing the possibity of the magic hand...read the percentages ..it aint worth t on long run...unless u have 1million in excess chipstack to call with loose ranges...but then why would you do that?
millions of players have missed great winning hands... the top players ..'don't openly mention it'..(tip) have a gg
It can be frustrating, but you definitely made the right decision. If you play regular you will find these kind of things become less frustrating if you analyze the hand and come to the conclusion that you did the right thing. Never let feelings cloud your judgement, it will only affect your game negatively.
is that your age or your iq only joikng you were right tpo fold its happened to me thousands of times you were not in the hand so you had not got a straight flush so syop with the silly posts put something up when you win a heap of money and you will get all the praise you deserve.

Odds and Outs are verry important in poker and this was a right fold. After your fold it is not interesting hat another Cards you see. Important was only to do the right Thing in the right Moment. The rest is only luck.
