As in workplace you have to work with the same people now and them and you aggressive attitude can harm the relation and you behavior might create a negative effect in the organization so try and avoid speaking.
Even if the idea seems strange to think positive when you are in middle of tearing down with heat. Try taking things positively, as you have nothing to lose, but only to gain.
