Does he just not care?

I ended it with him because I felt taken for granted and not appreciated. I still loved him but had to do what was right for me. Things ended amicably and then he reached out and we argued a few times. We briefly spoke when the dust settled & I asked if he still wanted me in his life and he said “whatever I want” - he has a hard time expressing himself & fears being rejected due to low self esteem.

I asked him what he wanted and he said “I honestly don’t mind I’m just focusing on myself atm.” I took that as he doesn’t care. I asked him if I should just leave him alone to work on himself and he told me I could do whatever I want.

Does it just sound like he doesn’t care about me being in his life anymore?
