You can Control Anger (1)

“Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:9 NKJV)
Beware of anger, don't excuse it or explain it away under any guise. Nearly in all cases, if not all, anger is a manifestation of self-centeredness; anger grows up and increase its compelling influence over your heart, not only when you express it but mostly when you condone it by giving excuse for it; why claim you are not angry when you still want to get even with people who offended you, why should you pay people back in their coin, why should you rejoice at your "enemy's" downfall.
“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; Lest the LORD see it, and it displease Him, And He turn away His wrath from him.” (Proverbs 24:17-18 NKJV)
You cant be given over to anger and still be walking  in wisdom concurrently, "for anger rests in the bosom of fools.” 
There is wisdom in refraining from anger; He that has control over is temper is stronger than he that controls a city and has no rule over his heart.
you have what it takes to put your temperament under control because you have the nature of God in you. Be wise!
