    because humans are impatient species, we get angry easily after constant failures, mocked at and challenged by foes.

    Anger is "mental violence", an animalistic response generated by every animal's survival instinct, more precisely so-called "fight/flight mechanism". We get angry because we feel threatened, whether physically or mentally. Physiologically, anger prepares us for fight with a rush of adrenaline and cortisol.

    People are mentally equipped with reasoning power, which makes our anger different from animals that can't help but act it out. So, we can channel our anger into humor, into a non-violent physical outlet, or deal with its physiological symptoms by simply breathing deeply, with an accent on prolonged exhaling which activates our parasympathetic, calming part of autonomous nervous system.

    We can also discipline our minds to disregard others' verbal assaults right on the spot, by letting go before the adrenaline rush hijacks our emotionality.

    Suppressing anger is considered an unhealthy policy by popular psychology, but not in my opinion. We can always let the person know that we don't appreciate their behavior---and even win by showing off our calm and not giving them a satisfaction of pushing our buttons.

    We suppress many of our emotionally charged urges and that makes us prudent, or even civilized beings. Like, we don't stuff ourselves silly with our favorite dessert no matter how much we would like to do it. And, while dancing with our friend's pretty wife at a party we control our hands no matter how much they are tempted to go sinful.

    Anger is to be controlled, not respected as a "normal part" of our humanness. In many cases it makes the difference between acting as an emotionally mature person, or an impulsive grownup kid. Even in cases of a physical altercation, as every martial artist may tell you, we may be much more effective as fighters if we are keeping a cool head.

    May be the same reason people get sad or happy.
