I punched a hole in the drywall on my apartment. I probably should be asking about managing my anger, but instead I need advice about fixing the hole.

I've patched it up, using a mesh patch and compound, but I'm left with a big bright white square in the middle of a more opaque white wall. Outside of repainting the entire room a new white, is there any good way to camouflage the brighter, lighter drywall patch? I have tried sanding around the edges to make it blend. That makes it better, but doesn't really solve the problem.
