How do you deal with anger?

It has come to my attention that there are certain things I need to reexamine in my life. A big thing I have been dealing with the past few years has been about how to deal with someone who angers you/hurts your feelings. Many people have said to just ignore it and go on with your day. Well, that can last for just so long. One day, all the built up frustration will burst. And that is kinda what has happened.... I'm trying to reach a balance, but along the way, I'm still trying to figure out the best way to approach the situation.

When is it okay to feel the anger and let that person know it really makes you angry/hurts you?

I want to have a gentle and quiet spirit, but lately it's been difficult. People have told me that anger is wrong. Hearing that for so long and brushing my thoughts under the carpet isn't working anymore.... Anger is a real emotion and it's okay to show it (in an appropriate way).

What do you think?
