Sometimes all we can do is to continue calmly to explain how we feel. If they are in the least bit open or empathic they will eventually realise that you are happy and content and that it's not bad for you.

There are some who will never see that, but then I'm not sure that any words or actions would help....

So for what it's worth, I definitely feel like you are doing the right things, here.
