1. Is there a practical purpose to friendship? Why do we have friends? Why do we want them? Value them? I'll work on this for a later date.
2. When people talk to me, I must hear code. No matter what is said, I never understand. When you say, "I don't hate you," I hear, "I don't hate you, because that's what you want to hear." With assuring smile you exclaim, "We want you to join us," but I hear, "We want you to join us, because that's what you want to hear." And, most certainly, I want to have a place; I want to "belong." I just don't understand what that means, how it applies or why, if at all, it pertains to me. Is this a legitimate definition of paranoia?
3. To/For whom am I writing. Why?
