Salut! Bienvenue :)
Take a real deep breath and fasten your seatbelts cos we're going down memory lane. Do you remember ever being hurt and treated unjustly by someone? Have you ever been made super angry that you could have put a bullet through someone's skull? Can you remember what your thoughts and reactions were at that volcanic moment? Dis you pour out magma instantly? Did you wait for it to build up before you let it all out? Or did you seal it up inside until it cooled and turned into cool new rock? :)
The thing is molten rock is not cool at all (literally); you can't let it out without lots of it pouring on you. It is also painful to seal it in but it is worth it in the long run...and many times in the short run too. You may end up being friends with your offender, or at least he/she begins to respect you as well as other people. Overall, it makes you a better person and holds a lot of reward for you in the hereafter. When you look back and think 'I really shouldn't have reacted that way', do you like the feeling of regret? It sucks. But when you look back and say 'wow, I sure am glad that I didn't say or do anything stupid', it feels good.
Some may say you shouldn't let all that anger build up, but if you have a good motive such as Allah's Reward, you'll have no problem. You can read Qur'an or make dua or even just remember Him to let it all out.
ALLAH (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) Says: "The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allâh orders the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend."
[The Qur'an Surah Fussilat 41:34]
