About Lack of Freedom

“You have a lot of unnecessary tension, suspicion to yourself, conscientiousness, and you keep yourself on a string, and it means that you are not free; for example: you find it necessary to motivate your every position and movement out of anxiety that you are not sufficiently clear and that you are not understood.”
Letter of Anton Chekhov to A. S. Suvorin (Moscow, 15 November 1888)
