You're doing the right thing. Just accept it and let it go. One technique I learned from the Sedona Method is to INVITE those feelings in. That way, you're annihilating your resistance to the bad feelings. Picture them as bad guys. Normally you say, "oh no! The bad guys are after me! I can't have them here!"
What would happen if you invited the bad guys over for lunch?
Not so bad anymore, huh? They might throw an insult at you and point a knife at you, but if you invite them, then they'll feel silly and sit down to turkey sandwiches.
The way I see it, the ego isn't BAD, but it needs to be kept in balance.
