Anger can get the best of anyone. Unfortunately, even if no physical violence ensures, words can cause emotional damage that cannot be repaired. It is important in whatever relationship we are in with others to conduct ourselves with kindness and patience even when angry. We want to avoid saying something we may not mean.
In doing so, sometimes, we need to walk away. We cannot always be a perfect saint and smile when angry and it is critical and even in some cases healthy to walk away. In doing so, one needs to communicate frustration in a healthy way. One needs to communicate that they are very angry and wish to remove oneself from the situation. This allows one to calm down before speaking.
The article, “Anger Management: What to Say When You’re Too Angry to Talk ” by Jeremy Brown lists a variety of phrases one can use to remove oneself from an angry situation and avoid saying something one may later regret. He states,

It is extremely important to control rage and anger. Too many times, we can hurt someone simply with our words. These words can deeply hurt someone or escalate a situation. We end up later regretting what was said and then have to seek forgiveness. Instead of hurting others with words, use words that remove oneself from the situation. It is better to politely excuse oneself and discuss the situation later than to say something one may forever regret.
