When anger enters the mind there are seven steps to take.
Step out of the situation and look in from a 3rd party perspective… can you see both sides?
If anger still persists then in a positive way allow anger to be expressed… by yelling in the car at night, throwing rocks at the fence, or many other safe and effective ways.
See in your minds eye the other person as a small helpless infant… concentrate on that image for 10 to 15 minutes… and remember all people are only doing what they think they need to do to protect themselves.
Forgive the other person, yourself, and the situation… some challenges are unavoidable… and a lack of forgiveness only allows the wound to fester and linger on.
Now connect with the child within… the child within may be angry too, so hold that small child in your minds eye… and tell him you will always be there for him. Many times a lack of security keeps us locked in anger.
Go inside and contemplate compassion for the other person… find love and peace within and share that with the other person in your mind.
Lastly meditate on love… when we meditate on love… all challenges sooner or later disappear.
Repeat all seven steps until anger fades away.
