I have often said that there is no value at all in constantly being chipper and cheerful and refusing to acknowledge unpleasant or difficult realities. Just as there's no value in suppressing heated disagreement about ideas or techniques. Adults can and do disagree, and if they can do that without being disagreeable, it serves a purpose.
