Ex broke up with me because I was controlling


My ex broke up with me because I was really controlling. Only because he cheated. I love him to pieces and want him to come back. He said he wants to be single and free. He also says how his heart wants me but his mind doesn’t.. what do I do?
It sounds like your ex is unsure what he wants. What is clear is that he doesn't like controlling behaviour. Are you sure that you want to get back with him after he cheated? Would you be able to let that go and not act jealously if you two got back together? I'd recommend giving him some space. If you take a couple of weeks, and stop asking if he can get back with you, it will take some of the pressure off and may help you to find your way back to each other. When you do talk, I'd recommend keeping things light-hearted and not discussing the old relationship.
