I'm ALWAYS in a bad mood

And now I'm happy about it...

Bad moods can actually be good for you, with an Australian study finding that being sad makes people less gullible, improves their ability to judge others and also boosts memory.
....negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking paying greater attention to the external world, Our research suggests that sadness ... promotes information processing strategies best suited to dealing with more demanding situations."
...people in negative mood are less prone to judgmental errors, are more resistant to eyewitness distortions and are better at producing high-quality, effective persuasive messages
