Donald Glover, who stars on "Community" and releases music under the name Childish Gambino, has posted a series of images to his Instagram that come across initially as somewhat alarming.

The 30-year-old actor wrote down his fears and insecurities on hotel stationery, took pictures and published them. His emotions run the gamut from "I'm afraid of the future" to "I'm afraid this is all an accident."

But what begins as a heart-wrenching soul laid bare in fact ends on a positive note. Glover writes: "No matter how bad you fuck up, or mistakes you've made during the year, your life, your eternity. You're always allowed to be better. You're always allowed to grow up. If you want."
