Can you please advise the best mean ? Does your anger get the best of you sometimes and you end up being hurtful? I am not so sure about the first part of the sentence . Can you please explain the usage of best ? Does it mean out of anger ?

If X 'gets the best' of Y, it means X defeats or overcomes Y Example: Peter is bigger than Paul, so Peter got 'the best of' of Paul in the fight. ie Peter defeated/overcame Paul. In your text, 'Does your anger get the best of you" means "Does your anger overcome/defeat you sometimes" ie. You lose control of it.

If your anger gets the best of you it means you can't stop it.
