I think for emotions to grow up, it needs a different path than for our logic. Logically, we might think regressing and going to a bad state again is bad for the learning curve. But apparently, for emotions, it is probably a needed thing for learning. Our emotions work differently than logic.. mostly they work by picturizing and what I think may be associating things.. So maybe regressing and then associating a better outcome with it is the right way for emotions to get cured.

I was reading a book yesterday where to cure anxiety and panic, Ts sometimes intentionally provoke anxiety and panic and then associate that with a calm and relaxing music or scene.. Maybe what is happening to you is also soemthing like that.
