2. Have a Goal
Now that you know a bit about COPD, what is your goal? Do you simply want to tell people in your life that you have this disease? Or are you looking to accomplish more? If you don’t have a goal, you won’t have a direction or a point to express to the people in your life.
Maybe you what people to know how much you love them and how you will depend on them in the future. Perhaps, you want to express your anger and frustrations about the path that has led you to this point. In most circumstances, any goal you decide on will be an appropriate goal if you follow through the best way you know how. Speaking without a goal will make it impossible to communicate information understandably.
