I think just the opposite. Life goes on and so must we (this statement being the epitome of positivity). As it does, the positives do their best to set the grumpy mood aside, smile (literally, they make themselves smile) and move on. The space allows the brain to process what happened subconsciously, without it taking over. When they look back with a clear perspective, a solution usually presents itself (if it's even needed). They may even think the situation was laughable (maybe, doubtful).
I used to train people to become servers in restaurants and I would tell them: "If you've had a bad day and you don't want to be here, well.....too bad." Just kidding. That's what I was thinking, what I really said was: "Forget about your bad day and for the next five hours, serve everyone with a smile, as if you're the happiest person in the world, it'll eventually stick." I gave this advice out of necessity. I couldn't have them running around being miserable with long faces, this would lead to bad service and unhappy customers. Now I'm giving this advice on my blog: if you're having a bad day (or week...or month?), let it go for now, smile and serve yourself as if you're the happiest person in the world...
