The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. –Proverbs 19:11 KJV
For normal, every day people, it is important to remember that most people are acting out of fear. Therefore, do not take attacks (verbal, physical, emotional) personally.
Put yourself in their position, and you might see there is no need to be angry.
If you are unable to change things (politics, entertainment, some circumstances), holding onto pain or offense hurts nobody but you.
Put yourself into a position to change things or avoid them.
If you are a Christian, you must realize that most attacks are either those briefly discussed above or are attacks against the One who lives in you, Jesus.
You are in a position of honor, suffering as your Lord.
Forgive them. You may be the one who wins them to the Lord.
