I initiated crowd funding for my studies and I encountered different kind of people reacting differently to my initiative. There are people who reached out to me, pointing out that there are facing technical issues while funding. There are people who encountered a lot of issues but still made an attempt to donate. Others were curious and asked a lot of questions on why I'm choosing this way. Others made a joke about it. A few ridiculed infront of me, others behind me.
In the act of asking, I had to work on my conditioning that asking is not an inferior act. I could realise that a lot of them have their own judgements due to their past and history.
