I didn't find the transition to be that dramatic. You - or at least I - get used to it being short, but then by the time you've fully adjusted to it being really short, it's brushing your shoulders. Then you get used to that and it's starting to fall down your back ... and so on.

Try not to feel disheartened. There's beauty to be found at all lengths. Right now you want what you want: long hair. You'll get there. Just try and take care of your hair as best you can. Also, you may find that focusing less on length for now will appear to make it grow faster
