“Anger is not the opposite of love. It is better understood as a feeling-signal that all is not well in our relation to other persons or groups or to the world around us. For the wrath of God in the sense of righteous anger against injustice is not an opposite of mercy but its correlative.”
Anger is potentially positive energy as long as we don’t give in to a reaction. Using the energy of anger to express compassion (a response) enhances our awareness thereby reducing the power of the false self.
