ב"ה I know the Rambam states that one must not ever get angry as ChAzal have also warned of its dangers which I agree with. But certain situations arise where a person needs to be stern or even confrontational at times to get people to get things done. I am aware of sefirah of gevurah, but everytime I am stern, I usually feel really bad. How does Judaism look at being stern with people, is it looked down upon or a necessary evil so to speak?
