Hiding appreciation, good feelings and fuzzy-wuzzy-snuggly emotions is almost a fad nowadays.
There is nothing wrong with sharing the way you really feel and one should be open to both expression and the allowing of others to express positive emotions.
Good feelings are often dismissed as being too, "corny" and that may belong to the possibility that society has hardened the lot of us to repel and dismiss good feelings and emotions as they are subject to be merely a sugar coated version of what people really want from us.
Allowing yourself to express good emotions, no matter how "corny" they seem, and working with the ability to receive compliments in a more accepting way, can promote positive self-perception.
As our self-perception becomes more positive, our ability to trust increases making it easier to develop healthy interpersonal relationships.
Naturally, social health leads to a higher self-esteem.
Expressing appreciation and learning to accept positive feedback and praise go much further than the surface or superficial layer it is perceived to merely coat.
