It is the same as compressing a spring, when the pressure that is built is released it can create an explosion. Instead you should try to reach an amicable solution. At the same time keep the inner intent that you do not want to hurt anybody with your words. You should say things that you would like to hear yourself. Project on to the world, as you would like. Whatever words you throw at others will eventually come back at you. You should speak such that when the words are returned to you, they are not harmful.
