"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored that to anything on which it is poured." Mark Twain

ANGER: a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.

Anger is a normal emotion with a wide range of intensity, from mild irritation and frustration to rage. It is a reaction to a perceived threat to ourselves, our loved ones, our property, our self-image, or some part of our identity. Anger is a warning bell that tells us that something is wrong.- pbs.org

Anger is a natural emotion, it's similar to a growl from a dog, a warning. It is stating that you are opposed to whatever is going on. You need to release the anger in some manner, not aggressively toward another person, but perhaps something physical to relieve the pressure. If you are unable to handle it calmly, remove yourself, go for a walk or a run, until you are calm enough to address it. 

Do not push it down and try to ignore it, it will fester and eventually manifest into illness. Express yourself, just be sure to be kind, state your point of view, forgive, and let it go.

There is a difference between anger and rage. Uncontrolled rage, name calling, abuse; emotion, verbal or physical, are not acceptable, ever.
