Sometimes people just have a bad day. And according to Donald Glover, that's what's to blame for his recent online rant.

On Monday, the former Community actor turned musician posted a series of troubling posts on Instagram. "I feel like I'm letting everyone down. I'm afraid people hate who I really am. I'm afraid I hate who I really am," he wrote. "I've been sick this year. This is the first time I've felt helpless."

But the actor now says he was merely venting. "That night, we had a show, and then afterwards, I had this moment of feeling like, 'What's the point? Why am I even here?' " Glover told PEOPLE exclusively Wednesday. "I just wanted to write down my feelings. I definitely was just expressing myself."
