With an album coming out in December and his show Community coming back soon for an unexpected season five, you’d think Donald Glover would be riding high. However, in a series of handwritten notes he posted Monday night on Instagram, Glover poured out his soul, revealing that’s not the case.

Glover will be featured less prominently on the upcoming season on Community, a decision which he explains in the notes was “to be on [his] own.” Glover also talks about his decision to release his album in December and opens up about a myriad other fears including “I’m afraid my parents won’t live long enough to see my kids” and “I’m afraid people hate who I really am.” You can read all seven notes below.
