Finally, always try to learn something from the experience. Ask yourself how you might prevent a repetition of the complaint, what you did that you can avoid doing next time, and how you might prevent unrealistic expectations in a similar future situation.
Above all, don’t take complaints personally – even when they are personal. It’s always worth remembering that no matter how hard you try, you can never please everyone.
