How do you get over damages on your electronic devices?

So.. yeah I was clumsy and banged my thinkpad against a cement wall and now there's a huge scuff mark on the side. The laptop is okay, still functional. but im trying to use my laptop without being distracted by it.. what self talk can i give myself to get over the imperfection?

Update:

So like I'm working on the laptop right.. and suddenly I would think "damn it, I dinged the laptop pretty badly" and then my mood shifts... it's like i go into negative self talk pattern after one trigger
