Everyone hates my haircut, how can I stop feeling bad?

Hard to come up with a title for this situation that doesn't make me sound like a whiny woman, but there it is lol.

I have had long hair for years, about 5 years. Natural, straight, thick and shiny. I've always been proud of it and it's what people compliment me for the most. Because it's so thick, it's heavy and difficult to care for, especially in the summer. So I decided to cut it off, it was about the middle of my back, little longer. I got it cut 2 weeks ago and it's now about at my shoulders. Basically a short layered bob style, no bangs. Anyway, I was feeling great, loving it and my head felt so light and it's so much easier now. The problem is, EVERYONE I know hates it, and is vocal about missing my long hair. My boyfriend's reaction was "What did you do to your hair?!" And now, every time he looks at me, just about, he says "oh, I miss your hair." My friends and family have basically acted the same way. I'm still happy with it, so I'm trying not to let their discouragements get to me,but they just won't stop. I've asked them to stop, told them to shut up, ignored it, they just keep saying things like "I can't wait til it grows back" "How long will it take to grow back?" "I can't believe you did this." I'm getting tired of it. Any tips on how to get them to shut up about it? I'm starting to feel bad. They don't say the cut is badnor looks bad, they just want my long hair back I guess.
