It's amazing how often people will rationalise like crazy to avoid actually saying: "I want you to be feeling something other than what you are feeling right now." Fear, lack of patience, their own buttons being pushed...

Telling someone "you should just get over it" is 9 times out of 10 just insensitivity and/or lack of self-awareness, not insight - someone wanting you to feel different not for your sake, but because it's making them feel bad. Probably the best response is to say: "No, you suck it up - this is how it is right now, deal with it."
