wtf? Manipulation? Trying to make me feel bad?

No, he is trying to explain why he did some of the things he did and let you know in a way that he feels some guilt about it and he doesn't want to cause you pain because of those choices he made for himself. You should take it at face value, thank him for letting you know and wish him the best and let him know you are doing fine as well. Then go on about your life like he never existed.
