Why did Cobb's projections hold him back as Mal came forward and stabbed Ariadne during Ariadne's Paris bridge dream?

Probably so he couldn't stop Mal.

I think this is a reflection of Cobb's ambivalence about Mal. On one hand he wants to be free of guilt and back with their kids, on the other hand he is holding on to beautiful memories and cannot let go. Subconciously he sees Ariadne as a threat to the status quo, his mind's unhealthy attachment to the tortured past Mal is a part of.
