That happens because an argument is a stressful situation, adn under stress, our functioning becomes different compared to when we are not stressed. This is why, preparing in advance for a stressful situation helps. for example, write down what you would like to say, and how. To control the crying, say what makes you cry - to yourself if not to that person. Addressing the emotion can help reduce the crying. However, wanting to yell at the other person is not healthy coping either. Therefore, find a calm and assertive way of getting your point across and practice that before time so that you are prepared in advance.
