Forgiveness
The only remedy for anger is forgiveness. This does not mean that some action may not be necessary for the sake of charity and justice. However, the debt must be dismissed "seventy times seven." When someone apologizes, it makes it easier to forgive him or her because of their repentance and confession, and by humbling themselves; they show that they think better of us than the treatment had shown. Still, it takes humility on the part of the one who forgives as well. Justice is on his side, but charity is demanding something more of him. This may be paramount to the meaning of being "Christ-like."

"Hot tempers cause arguments, but patience brings peace."
