Help my ex messaged me

Me and my bf ex had a bad relationship but on some days it was the best moments

, last time we seen each other he choked me out, I hit him, we broke up and it was a bad bad break up.

He messaged me today

He told me to take advantage of the courses he got for me to start my new job , i haven’t yet I been so upset and haven’t focused. He said we aren’t meant to be and that I need to make my parents proud and happy the same way he’s doing with his. He said he still loves me and he don’t hate me , and I guess still wants the best for me, and told me to take care. I havent responded and I don’t want to. Should I? And say at least

Thank you? Or is it best to leave it sense the way things ended.
