Donald Glover opened up to his fans today about some personal struggles that he’s been dealing with. The young actor / musician reveals that he is insecure about his place in the world and is constantly second guessing his career choices.
Glover recently announced that he will be leaving the show Community during its fifth season. Glover didn’t give an exact reason for his exit but he did give a little insight into how he reached his decision.
Glover writes: I didn’t leave Community to rap. I don’t wanna rap. I want to be on my own.”
Glover goes on to write about some deeply personal issues in a series of hand-written notes.
I’m not going to try to analyze Donald Glover’s thoughts or try to point him in the “right” direction. It’s not easy figuring out your path in life and who knows if Donald will make the right decisions for himself. But the actor / comedian / musician should feel a little comforted by the fact that his message hit home with thousands of his fans.
@DonaldGlover I have no expectation that you will read this but I feel for you, buddy. You’re one of the few clever rappers left out there.
