     I think anger is an emotion where one feels that my own emotions, feelings and needs are more that anyone else's, where one's ego is at its prime. You only get angry at situations and people who are not functioning according to my own made up values or ideas. But the bottom line is: I'm not supreme and so my ideas are not the only way to think and act in the world. When one begins to understand that everyone is at a different stage of evolutionary process and acting accordingly and if you conceivably happen to be at a better place than others in being able to say and do the right thing at the right time,then the best you can do is show compassion for the ones who have not quite reached your level. Such a thought process will help nip the anger in the bud because we have transformed our energy from anger to compassion and done both of us a favor.
