Donald Glover seems to be freaking out over life.

The "Community" actor alarmed some fans after postings dark musings of his various fears on Instagram, according to USA Today.

Billboard first reported that Glover's Instagram page contained pictures of his handwritten notes on Marriott Hotel stationery, accompanying statements like "I'm afraid of the future," "I'm afraid my parents won't live long enough to see my kids, "I'm afraid people hate who I really am," and "I'm afraid people think I hate my race."

He also reportedly wrote he's afraid of his show failing, that "people think I hate women," and that he's scared he'll never grow out of "bro rape," apparently a reference to an early sketch by Glover's comedy troupe, Derrick Comedy.

Oh ... he's also afraid his girlfriend will get pregnant at the wrong time, that she's still in love with "that dude," and that he'll never reach "my potential."

And you thought you were having a bad day.

The photos were under the headline, "childishness," a reference to his rap alter ego, Childish Gambino. According to reports, the 30-year-old Glover is planning to depart "Community" to focus on his rap music. But the Instagram notes suggest that's not the case.

"I didn't leave 'Community' to rap," Glover wrote. "I don't wanna rap. I wanted to be on my own." He also writes, "I'm afraid ('Community' creator) Dan Harmon hates me."

Will somebody give this guy a hug, pronto.
