This is the letter that Nightsky posted on this site on 5/21/2013 in support of Jared after "Sacrifice" aired. Jared and Gen both read this and shared the link on their Twitter for all to read. He even sent a message to Nightsky that he pulled it out after a really rough day on the set. I think it warrants a repost here on this day, just to remind what an inspiration Jared is to us.

Dear Jared,

It has been almost a week since your SPN family sat in front of their TV screens in awe of the season 8 finale. If everything was as it should be, you probably would have watched it with us, live tweeting occasional comments and interacting with friends, fans and fellow cast members. I imagine you would have experienced a few anxious feelings wondering how the episode would be received, but after a while you would have relaxed a bit, and allowed yourself to absorb the joy of knowing that the show was a success. It should have been an hour of exhilaration and professional pride for you. Instead of basking in excitement, however, I know you are completely consumed with a family crisis right now, so I assume you either missed the show entirely or have not had the time or the heart to tune into fan reactions. At some point in the future, though, when your life starts to return to normal, you will check in with Twitter and emails again, you will think about work again, and you might just have a fleeting sadness that you missed the enthusiasm that surrounded the season's end. You gave so much of yourself to us in that episode that I thought we should return the favor. So I would like to capture here the thoughts and feelings of as many fans as possible while the finale's effect on us is still raw and unmuted by the passage of time.

Jared, your performance in "Sacrifice" was nothing less than stunning. The entire episode was a masterpiece, but your portrayal of Sam's suffering and heartbreak was breathtaking, literally. Every analyst's review and fan comment I have read has used words like "award-winning" and "ground breaking" with phrases like "raised the bar yet again" and "hit it out of the park". You brought passion to every minute of Sam's self-doubt, physical pain and human need. The scenes with Mark Sheppard were touching, believable and transformative. (You have mentioned that working with a variety of other actors stretches your creative capabilities, so I am so glad you got a chance to craft that scene with such a deeply talented actor as Mark. Together, the two of you struck a perfect balance between intensity and sensitivity, resulting in an incredibly moving character exposé.) Then Sam's climatic revelation to Dean was arguably the most poignant scene in the series. It was long ago established that you and Jensen have unmatched chemistry, and while he added immeasurably to the emotion of that dialogue, you truly owned that moment. Your gut-wrenching confession of (perceived) failure was a window into our most guarded human frailties. You showed us a human's soul, leaving our hearts pounding and our nerves wrecked. (I can't imagine filming that scene several times to get the angles, camera shots, etc. perfect. You had to go through that over and over again!)

I can't say I'm surprised. While your acting is always superb, over the past eight years you have given us several outstanding performances as Sam. You reduced us to puddles of empathy in "Heart" (s2), "Croatoan"(s2) and "Mystery Spot"(s3). We enjoyed your humor and comedic timing through entire episodes of "Bad Day at Black Rock" (s3), "The French Mistake" (s6) and "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie" (s7), as well as through quick one-liners, as in "Reading is Fundamental" (s7). You left us awed in horror as you transformed yourself into a mocking and sinister Possessed!Sam in "Born Under a Bad Sign" (s2), showed us unforgiving rage in "Fresh Blood" (S3), then mystified us as you delivered a haunting, emotionless Soulless!Sam in season 6. There have been the intense, highly emotional scenes such as those in "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (s4), "Sex and Violence" (s4), "When the Levee Breaks" (s4), "Swan Song"(s5), "The Man Who Knew Too Much"(s6) and "Hello Cruel World" (s7) (Sorry"¦I started out to list just a few of my personal favorites but the list just kept growing!). Then, at the end of season 8, you began the road to your best performance yet in "The Great Escapist". None of these achievements, though, prepared us for the perfection we saw in the finale, in "Sacrifice". Your vulnerability was gripping and unforgettable.

Without taking away from the prior seasons' accomplishments, the distinction that elevated this episode's performance was that the impact did not come from what was happening in the scene. The audience was not affected by watching you die from being stabbed in the back, or watching Dean be killed after a season of trying to save him. We were not watching you kill Lilith or raise Lucifer. No, the power of your scenes came solely and completely from what was said and how it was said. There was only dialogue. There were simple movements like you drawing blood on yourself, holding a syringe up to Crowley or showing your arms to Dean but these were there only to support the dialogue. The intensity of the moment came entirely from the honesty of the human emotion. The movements of your eyes, voice inflections, breath, posture, the way you walked, the way you stood and the heartbreak in your face all delivered the dominance of this episode. Acting at its absolute finest.

During the New Jersey convention panel, Jensen said you were "wrecked" after filming the finale. With all respect, you did look tired. Then when your family crisis happened and you had to leave Rome unexpectedly, Jensen said you were "heartbroken" about missing Jus In Bello. He said that interacting with fans rejuvenates both of you and that talking to fans is what makes the long hours of your filming schedule worth it. So ironically, while we were watching a fictional show about sacrifices, you were being asked to make a real life sacrifice of your own for the good of your family. Hopefully, though, our comments give back to you some of that wonderfully grateful, positive enthusiasm that you missed. I wasn't one of the people affected by your absence in Italy or England, but I know I can speak for at least some of them when I say there is no need to explain further or to feel bad. We are your family too. We understand. We are proud of what you did and we support you.

Our love to you, Genevieve and her family. Our thoughts, hopes and good wishes are with you all. When you are ready, read these comments, and understand what your performance meant to us.

Love and gratitude

Nightsky
and your SPN family

******************

WFB friends, I know many of you already left your reactions to "Sacrifice" in review comments, but this is the place to discuss what you specifically thought of Sam in this episode. What did you think of Jared's performance in the finale? How did it affect you? Feel free to list your favorite "Sam" moments of the series as well or good wishes to the family! I will tweet or mail this to him at a future date (when it seems appropriate), but even if he never sees it, we will have recorded our reactions and that kind of positive energy always has a way of reaching its intended target!

Jared,

As a woman probably around your mother's age I can't tell you how proud she must be of you. I have 3 sons near your age and would adopt you in a minute. You have exposed yourself in a way that is so brave. Reaching out is smart, like you.

Even though I have been successful at several things I lost my job last fall and fell into a tailspin that shocked even me. I NEVER thought I could feel that way. As I was struggling to gain my footing your #AlwaysKeepFighting campaign came along. I cried out loud and said 'He is speaking to me!' This more than middle aged woman who has NEVER admitted to having thoughts like I was experiencing and NEVER would share with anyone go encouragement from YOU, this young man. It encouraged me to tell someone how I was feeling. This has kept me going some days.

NEVER doubt the impact you are having on so many souls. I wish I could give you a mother's comforting hug and I know you will get one soon. Hold on tight to all the great thoughts. Your wife, beautiful boys and your entire family. And of course your SPN family. YOU make a difference in this world and the world needs you.

I wore your shirt to work the other day at the homeless shelter I work at. The director asked me about it. I shared YOUR story about the campaign. He said it was so inspiring and thought we should adopt the same slogan at our shelter for our guests. THANK YOU for touching so many lives.

I have never posted here but this seems like a good time for my first post. I am 50 years young woman with a disability. I am the breadwinner for my family with a husband who takes care of everything else - including me. But there are days when I just don't know if I can get out of bed one more time and make it to work. But I do. And your work on SPN and #alwayskeepfighting is a part of that. So hang in the kiddo. Sending you love and a hug.

Jared, I don't even know where to begin to tell you how much you and all of the supernatural family means to me. You are like sunshine, you are my happy place, and you've gotten me through some very difficult times. Your Always Keep Fighting campaign helped me feel like I am not alone as I have lived with depression and anxiety for years. You helped me realize that I should not be ashamed of my struggles, but proud to be here and to always keep fighting for the life I know I deserve. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Whatever you are dealing with right now, know that you are so loved, and the SPNFAMILY always has your back. -Corinne ❤️❤️❤️

Jared, because of you so many bonds of love and friendship have formed across the entire blue dot we inhabit.

Last year was one of the worst years of my life. Divorce, near bankruptcy, ten years of work on my career up in smoke, illness, family trauma, and a lot more. When I went to BurCon last year, my friend's dad had a stroke while we were there. She and I were both hot messes that weekend, me crumbling under the weight of my burdens, and her facing the loss of her best friend and father.

Our SPN Family is how we got through it.

Fans, cast -- everyone rallied around us. The people who make our show so wonderful (you and all the other actors and crew and creators) reached out to us, showed us compassion and kindness (Misha even voluntarily got cried on when I sort of dissolved in his autograph line trying to tell him how my GISHWHES team was my rock). Robbie Benedict took the time to comfort my friend about her dad. And when she and I were sitting outside and I was holding her as she cried, within five minutes, people in our SPN family had offered to buy her a plane ticket home.

When I told you and Jensen about that later, both of you immediately connected, focused, and made it clear how much you cared. You told me that you weren't surprised that someone in our fandom would help her like that. Because we're family. Family don't end with blood.

We are your family too. You've been there for us. Sometimes onscreen as Sam, fighting your demons literally so we actually get to see them vanquished. Sometimes in person, where we can't see any battles raging. Sometimes through the internet, by helping us remember to Always Keep Fighting.

It means so much to me that in my book that's coming out soon, the acknowledgements are about you and Jensen. And meant for anyone who's fighting a battle that's unseen to others.


Here's what I said in those acknowledgements:

In the dedication for the first book in Ayala’s series, I wrote, “To Kristin and Jes, who always keep fighting.” This was for two of my dear friends who, like me, had a very-very-very hard year in 2014 and early 2015. Two months after STORM IN A TEACUP came out, the two stars of my favorite television show Supernatural, launched a t-shirt campaign called Always Keep Fighting to benefit those who suffer and survive every day with invisible illnesses like depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and more.
This book is very much a product of an ongoing fight, as is Ayala’s life.
As someone who lives with invisible illness, it was important to me to include this note. That little synchronicity between my last book’s dedication and Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles’ campaign fits very well with one of the major themes in Ayala’s story as well as the show Supernatural. When I first wrote STORM IN A TEACUP, I had never seen a single episode of Supernatural. (Yes, yes, I know. I lived under a rock from 2005-2012.) Though I am unaffiliated with the show, I believe deeply in the message shared by Jared and Jensen to keep fighting.
It’s hard. Life likes to kick us in the ass, and unlike Ayala, we can’t physically kill our demons. We have to live with them, keep them at bay, and sometimes fight them off without swords.
Sometimes it can feel like we have our own personal hells-hole that follows us around, spewing out demons faster than we can kill them.
This book is for you. Bravery isn’t about not being scared — it’s about keeping on when you are. It’s about looking the monsters in the eye sometimes, crying sometimes, and yes, sometimes making butt jokes and swearing until you laugh.
I urge you, if you’re reading this and your personal fight feels like it’s too much to bear, to reach out to someone. There are people who want nothing more than to talk to you when you are hurting and to fight beside you.
You can find international suicide hotlines at http://www.suicide.org, including specific lines for LGBTQIA youth, military veterans, and more. Reach out. There are people ready to reach back.
***

Thank you for reaching out to us and giving us a chance to reach back.

We're here for you, Jared. We love you. We will fight beside you. You have an army at your back.

Dear Jared,

Oh man, I've been there. It was in Nashville back in June 2011. I was so fried at that time. I was stupidly working on two full time IT contracts at the same time, trying to juggle all the school year end kids activities and run by myself the very active and demanding Winchester Family Business site among other commitments. I was only getting about 4 hours of sleep a night and coasting on fumes.

By the time me and the family headed down from Ohio to Nashcon to see you, Jensen, and all the others, something wasn't right. It hit me hard on the trip down. I had got a bad infection in my eye and my face swelled up awful. My body was way too tired to fight it and it got bad. Still, I went to Nashcon on Saturday anyway to see you and Jensen appear, even though I was feeling horrible and looking worse. You saw my eye and face that day. You tried to pull back your expression of shock (bless you for that), but that was one of my many warnings that day that I wasn't alright.

That night I went to the Vanderbilt University emergency room and ended up in the hospital for 4 days due to an advanced case of orbital cellulitis. I missed the rest of Nashcon, my kids missed the end of school, but that was the kick in the ass I needed to get things straight. I quit one of my contracts and scaled back all my activities to manageable levels. Sometimes, it takes something that drastic to happen to make you see when you're pushing things too far. And like you, it's my nature to push things too far. After all, so many people rely on you.

Rest well and you have our thoughts and well wishes. When you do get back in the swing of things, we hope it'll be at a much slower pace. We all will understand. You're human. You're also loved.

Jared,
I knew when I saw your tweets that yours was not just typical illness, it was our #AKF kind of illness. Or so it feels to many of us. We know what that is like because we have been there, walked in those shoes, felt that anxiety and pain, that fear and shame and panic. The best news is that these feelings will subside in their intensity, feelings are not facts. No matter the circumstances that triggered what you are going through, with time and support you will get through it. One day, one minute at a time.

For now, be gentle with yourself. Rest and let others do for you. You give so much of yourself all the time, no wonder you are so burned out. Life is a marathon, not a sprint my friend. You will get there. You are so beautiful, so giving. Let us give you our shoulders, our support, our strength for a while. You are so loved and cherished by so many. Please take care of yourself. (PS: I find sleeping with my baby always helps when I'm feeling really crappy. Maybe Shep would be up for that?)

From the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, and with love, Trish

I've been thinking about why so many of us feel so deeply for Jared. Why we're so truly invested in a man that, for most of us, we only know from his acting jobs, interviews and conventions.

There's normally a firm wall between the fan and the actor. There's usually some sort of metaphoric distance or barrier in place for protection, to guard deeper feelings and emotions. Jensen talked about this in his morning panel in Rome and how he's learning to become more open. However, even when an actor begins to find the ability to let down that guard somewhat, there will always be chunks of himself he will never show. It's human nature and it's a trait learned and honed for self preservation.

Jared, while keeping private things private, has always been far more open than the average person in the spotlight. He's always been far more giving of himself to others. He understands that by talking about his own pain, he can reach more people and help more and he's okay leaving himself a little more open for that reason.

When he talks, it never feels like he's just mixing in the party line. It never feels like he's just spouting out what he thinks he's supposed to say.

He's real. He's raw. And it's why he's so loved.

While if I HAD to choose, I'm a "Dean girl", I've always liked Jared and I've always been a Sam fan. I was able to attend one of Jared's Meet and Greets at a convention and I went in excited to have that experience. I went in a happy fan. I'm a happy "Brother" fan. I was also going to Jensen's later on.

However, after that M&G, things changed for me. My love for him morphed into something so huge. My need to protect him and my need to see him happy hit record highs.

That wasn't because I got to be close to him in proximity. It wasn't because I was star struck either. It was because he gave us glimpses into his heart. He let us see emotions and uncertainty that others hold close to their vests. He let us see the real Jared and not the facade many actors play when they're in the spotlight. Things he said and the emotions he showed that afternoon will always resonate deeply with me.

Then, when he began this Always Keep Fighting campaign, you could tell from the very beginning, this wasn't just some neat idea to him. This was something he feels strongly about. He took the time to get it right because he knows. Because he understands. Because he feels that pain too.

Yes, we will never "know" him the way his friends and family do. Yes, there will always be some sort of wall simply because it's necessary. It's just the way things are. But I think Jared allows us in far deeper than any other professional actor or musician I know.

And, because of that, and because of who he is. He has my heart! And I think that speaks volumes about the person Jared is at his core.

So, there's no reason to question why it is we feel this way so strongly. There's no need to justify the strength of the love or the ferocious loyalty we have for him. Honestly, with Jared, I don't think you can really help but become invested. Because, in so many ways, he's invested in you too.

We owe him this love, because he loves us.

With much love,

Danielle (tw1nsm0m)

Hi Jared. I know you are having a tough time of it this evening. Please know it will get better and we will fight along with you. I am so glad you are going home to your family in Austin tonight, please take care of yourself.

The amount I have loved watching you in this show, and how much I have loved this show I can't even describe. I have never watched a show I love more and you have made this wonderful character in Sam that I love watching and want to care for so much it physically hurts sometimes (that is a lot of 'loves' for 2 sentences but I think it is probably still not enough :D). That is all in the character you made and made your own and I believe (and believe in) 100%. I think you have had a tough time this season on a personal level and I hope you are coming to the end of that now and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I have never been to a con but I have friends who have and I have heard first (and second and third) hand accounts of meeting you, or having photos taken or autographs. Without exception those stories have been so positive, and make me smile when I read them, and in every case they talk about you going above and beyond whatever your role is at that moment.

I saw a story of a girl you gave your shirt to, I saw how you got a precious poster returned to its owner, I have heard how you listen to so many stories of people's personal trials - and I have seen what you had to say to those who came and told you their stories during panels. Your answers were so heartfelt and moving and genuinely helpful. I particularly liked the one about when you feel bad, turning around and helping someone else, as it will make you feel better. That is an incredibly generous mindset right there!

Well now I think it is your turn to be the one in line being helped. (Don't consider paying it forward, you hear? you have already done that plenty, you are ahead of the game.) I hope you get to take it easy and boat on the lake for the summer.

Don't worry, it will all be fine in the end!

Sending you love and best wishes

For Jared, Because my heart is hurting so bad for him -
I'm coming out of lurkerdom to send him all my best.

He (and Sam) were there to help me get through some of the absolute lowest moments in life.... and life has gotten better.
I know he's exhausted, and it sounds like he's really hurting, based on his tweets tonight. I'd love to let him know it's true. Life does get better.

If I could, I'd wrap him up in all the love of all his thousands of fans - those he has touched, and helped, those (like me) whose lives are better because he has touched their hearts in some way.

Jared has been strong enough to open the conversation about depression, and mental health. Let's show him that fandom is strong enough to hold him up when he needs us, too.

We love you, Jared. #AlwaysKeepFighting
And thank you for being who you are. And especially for reaching out when you need us. I hope you know we are reaching back to you.

Jared, I'm thinking about you as you head home to your family. I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for bringing to life my most favorite fictional character ever. As I've gotten to know Sam Winchester, I've enjoyed learning about you as well. My favorite thing about you is how well you love. From your pictures, tweets, and spoken words, I have no doubt that you love your family, your friends, and your fans. And it's pretty obvious that they love you too. Hope you have a safe trip and that things are better soon!

Jared, I dearly hope you will be able to see this and know how much you are loved. Aside from the incredible character you have created and have poured your heart and soul into for over a decade, you are the most amazing human being. Full of love and laughter. You brighten our lives and changed the lives of so many people with your beautiful heart. You must be having a tough time right now (I don't know why nor is it my business) but please believe how special you are. My love to you Jared, and your lovely family. I met you at the Seattle Con and when I said I was so glad you loved my city you gave me a huge smile and looked me in the eye and I knew you meant it. Come back and visit us soon! Take care of yourself Jared and # AlwaysKeepFighting.

Dear Jared, I'm so sorry you are feeling so bad. You are loved. I wanted to share with you what the AlwaysKeepFighting campaign and Supernatural means to me. I work with emotionally disturbed children and adolescents. Most of them are from abusive backgrounds. I have children as young as six who are suicidal. Some have hallucinations. They are fighting true "demons". I started watching Supernatural just a few years ago but find it very therapeutic to watch Sam and Dean kick some demon butt! I myself was molested as a child and have dealt with depression. You and your campaign bringing awareness to mental health issues is amazing. Thank you for using your celebrity platform to speak for the people and especially my kids at work who are suffering and fighting some very real monsters. My love and best to you and your precious family. Always always always keep fighting!!!!

Jared, Please know that all SPN fans love you and hope that things are better soon.
SPN is not like any show I have ever watched before, and the reason for that are you and Jensen and what you both bring to the characters. You give your time, your heart, your energy and your love to the show and the fans.
Now please take the time to take care of yourself, your well being is the most important thing. We fans love you.

Jared, Sending you so much love and positive energy during your struggle. There are days when we've all felt alone in a crowded room. Felt like tomorrow can't get better. Could not see the shelter from the storm. I'm here to tell you it matters. Your pain your frustration your problems matter. You are a public figure and may feel like you don't deserve to have down days but I'm telling you this. You are allowed. Everyone's pain and hurt is valid. So take all the time you need. Take the comfort of friends and those closest to you. Take alone time if that is what's needed. We'll all still be here loving you just as much tomorrow. Take care of yourself. Love yourself.

Jared,

I have only three words to say to you.....YOU ARE LOVED....I lied...I have more than three words.:) ...I want to take this moment to not only tell you how much I adore you , but to thank you. thank jared for every smile you've ever given me for they are many. thank you for being....for just being...you mean so much to so many for so many reasons. please don't ever underestimate how much you mean...or what you do and how you affect people in the most positive of ways....you have literally saved lives and most likely don't even realize it...you're the best of what humanity represents...and I aspire to be half the person you are at such a young age....so thank you for inspiring me to be better and giving me the courage to always keep fighting....

so now I want to return all the love you've given us....you need love you got it...you need support it's yours....you need encouragement...consider yourself encouraged....you need us....here we are....;)

Jared,

Beyond anything else, please know you are loved & supported. You have helped so many! You've brought about real, positive change and you are a beacon to so many who are hurting.

You are so talented, have such an amazing heart, and have given us so much joy! You're so special, so cherished and so loved!

All around me, on an almost daily basis, I see evidence of the good that you've done. Because of you, fans from all over the world have found a strength they never knew they had! We've found peace and acceptance we were afraid would always be out of reach. We've found a sense of belonging, and a line of communication many felt was impossible. You've created an outreach and an environment of love and empathy many believed they didn't deserve. You've given us courage to put one foot in front of the other and live even when just breathing can feel so absolutely impossible.

You did that. You continue to do that! You've become a true catalyst for hope, a refuge in what can be a very cruel storm. You've provided comfort when so many feel so isolated and lost.

Never feel as if you're alone in your own struggles. The outpouring of love you're hopefully seeing now, is still just a drop in the bucket! It's impossible to count the number of people who love you and who genuinely care about you. We're rooting for you. We remember your kind words, your support, and because of you, lives have been forever altered and enriched.

Please take care of yourself! Take the time you need and surround yourself with the people that lift you up. You deserve the best! You've given so much of yourself freely and because of this, and just because of who you are, so many of us have now found the means to carry on. We've found the strength to continue the fight even when sometimes we feel we've lost the battle.

You are not fighting alone. We love you, always & forever. No matter what! You are a hero and a champion. #AlwaysKeepFighting

With all the love in the world, Danielle (tw1nsm0m)

Jared, I'm not the greatest with words and quite honestly, I wouldn't be able to find the words to describe how much you mean to me. Every time we have met, you've always been so kind, sweet & warm. You made me feel like a friend and that made me feel so special. Know that there are thousands and thousands of people that got your back at anytime and anywhere. It's the least we can do for such an amazing guy like yourself. Always Keep Fighting. Love you SO much.

Jared,
A few months ago you started the Always Keep Fighting Campaign right when i needed it the most. You inspire me to share my story, something i hid for the longest time because i always thought i would be look upon as weak. With your help i come to find out i am not weak, i am strong. Jared you inspire me to stay strong and Always Keep Fighting now it's mine turn to give you that strength you have giving me. You are strong, you are wonderful, you bring happiness to peolpe lives and you are always there for your fans and family. I was lucky a few months ago to met you in person and you laugh because i didn't want to turn and look at the camera just wanted to hug you. Now i am sending you virtual hugs, healing thoughts, and much support. Always Keep Fighting Jared you are very much love.

Jared, I love you and Gen. You have helped my 17 year struggle with chronic pain and depression immensely. I'm homebound and the world you and Jensen created with Supernatural has helped me so much. Because of you, I feel useful again. I am able to interact with loving and caring people online. The wonderful SPNFamily you helped create welcomed me with open arms. They don't belittle me because of my disability. I even get to help The Winchester Family Business fansite from home. For the first time in 15 years, I actually get to participate in the world. It's all because of you and Supernatural. Thank you and God Bless You!

Jared,

This has not been an easy year for me. Actually, it has not been an easy few years for me. I've had some serious lows and not that many highs. In 2013 my boyfriend of 4 years left me and never spoke to me again. It left me feeling sad, alone, and completely broken.

My father passed away unexpectedly in January. I wasn't ready for it. I'm still in denial. I still feel like he's still around then reality hits and it hits hard.

I want you to know that through all of this the one constant thing that has kept my spirits up and given me a wonderful distraction is Supernatural. You and Jensen have given me so much joy through these hard times, I could never thank you enough. You have no idea how important you are to me.

It is physically paining me right now to see you be so sad. But I'm so glad you're doing what's best for yourself and that you're asking for help. You're amazing, Jared.

I hope we hear something positive from you soon. Just know you are loved.

Love,

Kim

Dear Jared.
I don't know how to write beautiful words, but should try.
You wanted to know what gives me a show? I watch Supernatural for only two years. However, after the first series, it was clear to me that I found something that I can rely on in life. I started thinking, as in a given situation would Sam or Dean, Jared or Jensen? When I was a teenager, that there has been some event that inspired me to thoughts of suicide. A little later I was able to overcome that feeling, but get rid of it till the end helped you with Jensen. You-my distant older brothers and I try to be around you.
I decided to make a tattoo with your theme, Jared. "Always keep fighting." It's not just words, it is now my motto is pushing to move forward. I have been learning to live and to trust the people with you, Jared.
You're a big hot sun, which gives all the care and warmth. Therefore, if you suffer a bad and us. My prayers and my thoughts are always with you. Chuck it all now and enjoy the peace and quiet, because you're worth it.
I love you, Jared, and I want you to be happy.

Dear Jared,

You have been in my thoughts/prayers all day, Jared, I am so worried about you! I can literally feel your pain & desperately wish I could give you the biggest hug ever right now. You are such an inspiration to me, I would not still be here if it weren't for you. You make this world a better place by being in it. The kindness, compassion and caring you have shown me & so many others is commendable, and I'd give anything to be by your side this very minute, to help you as you've helped me.

Please know that you are loved and incredibly important to the ‪#‎SPNFamily‬. I love you with all of my heart and I'm sending every ounce of love I have to you. Please ‪#‎AlwaysKeepFighting‬ and stay strong. I know you will get through this difficult time with the love of your family & #SPNFamily behind you. Xo

Hi Jared, this is the gist of a letter I was debating on giving to you at AHBL6 so I hope it helps:

So I was 13 years old when I first watched supernatural. I watched it the first night it aired here in Australia. Here I am, 10 years later, about to turn 23, a university graduate, a qualified teacher, and a proud member of the SPN Family.

I grew up with Sam and Dean, they almost feel like brothers to me. I struggled a lot during these last 10 years with anxiety and depression, on top of all the other teenage drama. There was a significant part of these last 10 years where I felt like I didn’t have anyone. I didn’t have any friends, my family were not emotionally available, and so I was struggling alone and afraid for a very long time.

But even when I thought that I didn’t have anyone, I still had Sam and Dean, so I would curl up in my bed and re-watch the first few seasons of Supernatural, over and over. They were there for me when I was sad, sick, bored, stressed, and happy… They went through all of it with me. They gave me the strength to keep on fighting every day, because Sam and Dean would never give up and so neither would I.

Supernatural has not only saved my life, but it completely shaped it. It helped me so much at a time when I didn’t know who I was or if it was ever going to get better. Through Supernatural I found a family, I found friends, I found a world where I fit in, where it was cool to like something and to be enthusiastic and no one laughed at me for it. I am in a much better place now, but things are still hard sometimes and when they are I take comfort in knowing that Sam and Dean will always be there for me.

I’m struggling to find the words to explain how much supernatural, and you mean to me. I hope this gives you some idea. I know you (and Jensen) are both your own people and that you’re not Sam and Dean, but they wouldn't be the Sam and Dean they are without you, and I couldn’t have done it without you.

But to you, Jared, I really just wanted to say: thank you so much. The things you do both on Supernatural and in the real world have touched the hearts of so many people. I just know that you are a genuinely good, kind, caring, wonderful person and I wish you all the happiness in the world. Thank you for sharing your life with us.

Dear Jared,
We've never met, but I hope to meet you one day. I've struggled with depression and self harm my whole life. The AKF movement has been and incredibly uplifting experience for me. I wear my t-shirt proudly and wished I'd had the money to buy more so I could wear it daily. Thank you for being you, for being special, and for reaching out when you didn't have to.

Okay so, spn came into my life when I needed it the most. The show & Jared has help me through so many things. I've been in a weird "funk" and have been having a rough 2 years.
With the campaign he started, he showed me that it was okay to feel the way I was feeling. His Always Keep Fighting campaign has given me the courage to open up to someone and talk about what really goes on with me. And because of that I'm so grateful and appreciative of Jared. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't know where I would be right now. He has given me the strength to push through and has given me the hope that everything will be alright. I love this man more then words can describe. I can only hope that he sees how much everyone loves him too! ❤️

Dear Jared,

I am saddened to hear that you are going through a period of difficulty. It is incredibly brave of you to be so honest about your struggle and to publicly ask for the support you require. You are personifying the message that you present with your #AlwaysKeepFighting campaign. By letting us through the protective barrier of your public persona, you personify the essence of de-stigmatizing mental illness and other emotional struggles.

I am one of the many (many) individuals for whom your message strikes a deeply personal note. I will not share my own story with you at this time because I hope you are taking the time you need to focus on yourself and your needs. Please know, however, that you have made a real, positive and lasting difference in my life and the lives of countless others. You inspire me to Keep Fighting and I sincerely hope you are able to internalize the motivation that you give so freely to others.

Please know my thoughts are with you and my best wishes that you can swiftly regain the balance and health in your life that you so richly deserve.

Leaving messages all over for you Jared. Every where you may happen to see it. You make the world a better place just by being in it. Don't know what is going on. I don't need to know. I know that you have given me some thing I haven't had in a long time. I have become very restricted due to my health. But the show, the clips from the cons, the social media interactions have made me feel like I am part of a group again. Like I have friends again. So thank you for that. I am really trying to get to the Nashville con in Feburary. Lord willing I will be able to thank you in person. I love you and pray you find the peace and comfort you need at this time. What's that song say? Lean on me, when your not strong, I'll help you carry on.

Jared, I don't know if you'll make it to this page but I want you to know that you are not alone. Throughout middle school I struggled heavily with depression, self harm, and suicidal thoughts. I'm not gonna tell you to cheer up and feel better because I know that isn't necessarily your own choice. All I want to tell you is that you are not alone. You are not alone. All of us are here with you and we care about you so so much. If you're angry, upset, hurt, numb, we're here and we love you. No matter what. It gets better, I promise. We will be here for you in your dark time and we will be there for you on the other side. Always keep fighting Jared. We love you so much.

I do not know what is going on right now, but from what I can see, you are not okay. Whatever it is: You can get through this. Keep yourself safe and around the people you love. Take care of yourself first and get yourself better. You are loved by many. I am speaking to you human to human, not fan to actor. I know what it like to feel so alone and mentally derailed. You can be so emotionally and mentally drained that you cannot see past it, but the other side of the tunnel is there. You can do this. Please Always always keep fighting.

with all my love,

Hi Jared,

I think we broke Twitter with all the messages we sent you so I move over to this page. LOL. I don't know what is wrong with you but I am glad you are on your way back home to here in Texas. You need your family and close friends when you are sick. But please know that you are very loved and respected in all the SPN Family and we send you all our love and prayers and good thoughts.

Whether you realize it or not you have touched a hugh amounts of lives with your love and caring, as well as your acting. You have saved many lives, even if you don't know it, and you have changed many more, like mine. Most people can't say that.

I was in a depression when I started watching SPN and I had not laughed in years. And you taught me how to laugh again and not to just laugh but to laugh out loud. I was able to start a new career because of the example and hope you gave me. You are a hero, and I know that it is hard to hear and accept , because I was in the military and people used to tell us we were heros, but we just felt like we were doing our jobs, not doing anything heroic. But you are. You go above you job and work to help others outside of your acting. You treat your fans with love and respect, which is rare, and you do things like your #Keep On Fighting campaign that has helped hundreds of people. That doesn't mean we think you are perfect, we know that no one is, just that you are exceptional. We couldn't relate if you were perfect.
:) :)
You are the kind of man I would have wanted my son to be if I had had one. I have two girls about your age. Please take care of yourself and don't come back until you are really ready. We love you and your family and want the best for you all.

These are all lovely messages. I am so proud to be a part of this fandom, tonight.

I really really hope Jared can one day see what he, Jensen, and this little show has done for so very many of us.

I have tears of compassion, and send many hugs for all of you who have spoken out here.

We are brave, we are strong, we are loving. We are just like Jared, who has inspired us all.

Stay strong everyone. And, of course, AlwaysKeepFighting!

Jared,

Tonight, I prayed to the g-d that I definitely believe in but never pray to because I believe in you. Because you've shown your support and love for us, your fans, numerous times, and encouraged us to keep fighting through whatever struggle we may be facing. You've given me something to hope for during so many of my low times and knowing that you have faith in all of us is what keeps me fighting and keeps me strong. If you are asking for our help, just know we ALWAYS believe in you and that you deserve to be happy. You've been so strong for your fans and now we're here for you to let you know that we'll never leave your side and we'll never stop supporting you and being thankful for all that you've done. So THANK YOU for making such a huge difference in so many people's lives and know that we believe in you too. We love you. Stay strong. And always keep fighting. <3

Everyone, thank you so much for making this thread something that is going to show Jared that we understand where he is at the moment and that we are there for him.

Hopefully what you have all said will show other people in a similar place that if they reach out for help then help is easier to obtain. People don't always know what is going on with you and to be able to tell them and ask for help is important!

Jared made a lovely speech at a con about when you feel bad help someone else because it will also help you to feel better.

He is saying Always keep fighting for both of you! Because we are a community.

I am not always good with explaining how I feel about stuff but I want to say am proud to be a part of the fandom this evening. You all rock !

And Jared? Well we should continue to tell him how much HE rocks!

Namaste (and Carry On)

Wow, this is amazing! You all are showing how inspirational the positive side of this fandom can be. I'm sure these good vibes are flooding Texas by now.

I've got to call it a night, but I'll check in tomorrow and help if you're having problems with any pictures or links. Here's one more positive thought. It comes from Mark Pellegrino on Twitter.

@jarpad my brother. I don't know what's wrong, but you hang in there. This whole SPN FAM loves you like crazy. That includes me of course.

Dear Mr. Padalecki,
Millions of people love you because your wonderful acting skills have brought Sam Winchester to life for us. When you are feeling low, please think of all of us because we certainly think a lot of you. If you need to relax, do what I did when I was in labor: shut your eyes and count from 1 to 10 over and over and over. It's impossible to stay stressed out while you're doing it.

I am of an age where Jared would land in the space marked "son."

So Jared, please know we all love you so very much. I don't say that like some people say 'please pass the butter.' I rarely say I love you to anyone that i am either not related to or in an active relationship with. But I love you, you are heavy in my heart, and I cannot wait to see you out the other side of this situation. Be kind to yourself. Be aware of not only how much you need your family, but how much they need you. Really, KNOW it gets better, not just think it does.

Big moose hugs!

Jared, many blessings to you. You are in my prayers, along with your family. I have loved your show since day 1. My partner of 11 years, Scott, and I have watched every episode over and over. We even watch it on TNT daily,4 times a day. We have both gone through our struggles with depression, injuries, and disability. But we manage to go to Creation ChicagoCon every year since the 1st one, often hobbling in pain, using canes and scooters. We've met you and Jensen quite a few times when taking pictures with you an gettin autographs.
You and Jensen have such great spirits. Thank you for openly speaking about depression. It is still stigmatized, yet when heroes like you speak out, people listen. And we know that we are not alone. My guy and I are awaiting the Moose/squirrel tshirts. Not only does Sam and Dean help give us strength to keep fighting.
You also in the real world are a true hero!

I want you to know that I'm gathering together every smile you've given me, and all the joy I've received from you sharing your talent, and I'm putting them in a package wrapped in Unconditional Love. I'm sending that package out into the Universe with the special instructions to multiply all these wonderful feelings x's 1k and return them to you, because you deserve at least that much! And it will manifest in a special way that you'd never expect . . . so expect the unexpected!
Much Love to you! Thank you for Being. <3

Peace, Love, and Good Happiness Stuff,

5 years ago I was a broken shell of a human. Left with 3 small kiddos and a heap of depression and self hatred. When I started watching #SPN...Everything changed. Jared and the boys helped make my life make sense again. One enormous bear hug from Jared at VanCon last year left me in a mess of happy tears. I felt alive and cared for. It only takes one person to believe in you....Jared, you have millions. We love you. We need you. You helped save me and my 3 daughters and we thank you for being such a wonderful human. #AlwaysKeepFighting

Dear Jared,

I don't know where to start... It is actually a long story what brought me to Supernatural. My husband's brother had said to us many times we should watch this awesome show and that we would like it but I never got around to it. After school I was tossed immediately to unemployment line and financial trouble and it lasting many years drained all the joy and happiness from my life. I lost the will do do things that I loved like writing and drawing that meant the world to me but being cut from society and feeling you don't matter left me not numb. Maybe that was better than to feel anything.

I got a lucky break though after over five years when me and my family would have dropped to rock bottom and I got a job. It lifted my mood but still it didn't give me the spark to continue the things that would be good to myself. And then finally I was able to watch Supernatural. And boy did I watch it. With Netflix I could devour all seasons fairly fast and we re-watched it together with my husband. You and Jensen really make the show and what you give out for us is a largely why Supernatural is so special.

And to answer what Supernatural and you have given me is new friends. I started to write again my own stories and even articles. Also I continued designing things, took a leap to blog world and twitter. I even learned to use a program for video editing and although getting a job was a huge thing doing the things I truly love is medicine by itself.

So, I wish you to get well and know that you are loved. Rest and have some quiet time with your family.

You are not alone. #AlwaysKeepFighting

So, as I am customed to post. Here are few Fan videos to make you smile:





Quest wish:

I just wanted to add my support for Jared right now and send him lots of love.
Jared, you have a heart of gold, your honesty, empathy, warmth and great kindness towards others makes you a very special person and that is why, as much as I adore you for being Sam Winchester, I love you a hell of a lot more for being Jared Padalecki... for being uniquely and wonderfully YOU!... You've done a lot to help raise awareness about depression, I'm a longterm sufferer so it's meant a lot to me, but you MUST take care of yourself first and foremost. I quietly follow you on various pages, but I felt compelled to reach out to you tonight/today and say 'hello' and send some hugs.
I hope that if you are reading this, you are doing so when much rested and back with your lovely family, safely at home.

For Jared,

There are so many people here who take the words out of my mouth, but I feel like I need to add what I can.

There were times in my life when I felt as if nothing would ever get better. I knew people cared, but I saw it as a facade. I was just baggage they had to deal with, someone they would want to get rid of. I felt hopeless, alone, and most of all, worthless.

It was then that I fell in love with Sam Winchester. For his fight, for his struggles, for how you portrayed him. It wasn't long, however, before I learned about you as well. Beyond your portrayal of Sam, you have done so much to help people. Although you've had no obligation, you've given us support, encouragement, and so much love. Look at the people who respond to you - these are all of the people you have helped, you have touched. Your impact on this community has been immeasurable, and I only hope that we can return the love and support that you have offered us.

I'll have you in my thoughts,
Rachel L

Dear Jared,
As Gautama Buddha said, "There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle" and the one that you have lit has traversed countries and continents to tear apart the darkness in many lives, mine included. It is only fitting for this amazing global family to shine that very light to enliven your life. I have fought all 25 years of my life and I have no idea when I will become immobile or worse. The day I came close to giving up, I read about your campaign. I'm not into social media and I did not know about it, but for some reason, I came across the campaign by accident and as they say, the universe conspired and encouraged me to fight on. You have not only inspired our fight but helped us inspire those around us too and for this very reason, you have become probably one of the richest people on earth when it comes to love of family and friends. As this page rightly indicates, you have millions of shoulders to lean on and an equal number of hands to lift you up.

Being an only girl, ‘ve always wished for siblings to share the best and worst moments of my life but if SPN has taught me something, it’s that family don’t end with blood. With that in mind, you can safely but surely remove the words 'alone' and 'lonely' from your dictionary cause we've all got your back bro! I live half way across he world in India and I suppose I would never get the opportunity to meet you or the wonderful crew of SPN and even if you happen to travel here, I don’t know if I will be physically capable of getting to that place, so here is a healthy dose of virtual hugs, twice each day atleast, enough to last a lifetime! Sarvathra Sukhinah santhu, Sarve santhu niramayaha! (roughly translates to May all live happily and May all live healthy) This is a prayer I say everyday for the world but I will dedicate it all to you and your family till you pull through these trying times. May you be blessed with all the happiness in this world!! Thank you for creating a life out of your existence and inspiring others to do the same!

Hi Jared
After reading all these wonderful stories and comments ,the kindness,that you and all the SPN family show knows no bounds,and all these people truly care for you .
I have to be truly honest and first say I don't know much about you and if I'm truthful about supernatural,I only started watching it at a friend's request 6 weeks ago ....and in the time I have watched every episode and season ....just got 22 23 of s10 to go ,saving that for Saturday to watch with Elle my friend .
Let me explain about the friendship Elle and I share, we live in a small village about 2 years ago I met Elle who was a friend of a friend out walking , and to be truthful if anyone needed a hand up it was her....both physically and mentally , she was in such a low place in her life that even the character Crowley would have needed to look down to see her...she kept a bottle of vodka and pills beside her bed ....just waiting for the courage to take them......nobody should live like that ,through the previous year she lost her husband daughter ,her best friend her home , her health deteriorated ....it just seemed relentless,anyway I'm rambling I'm sure you get the picture....life was bad ! Now I'm not any kind of angel,but in my life my emotions have been up and down like a fiddlers elbow at a Ceilidh,but i have always been lucky enough to have people,whether it was friends, siblings, or later my ultimate achievement, my children to drag me back ,and help me face reality,....Elle had nobody , as I said I'm no angel,but I have spent the last 2 years lending a hand being her friend letting her shout scream laugh cry, sometimes all at the same time ....it's been a long road but my friend is a whole new person , no it didn't happen over night , but she's alive , no more dark thoughts every day , yeah she still has them , I suppose at times we all retreat to that place , but I Will as you say keep fighting for her ....because like you she has a good heart ,by reading these comments on everything you have done for your fans I know that you are what my mum used too call good people.ok I'm rambling again I tend to do that .... a lot! Anyway what I'm saying in a roundabout way , is you have to do what's best for you , wherever makes your life and heart that little bit better , if that is being with your family , you can't feel that you have let people down ...because everyone has got to phone in too sick to work sometime.....and as much as it pains you to do so...people understand, and if they don't ....you really don't need their negative influence in your life ....really you don't
I look at at pictures of your beautiful wife and those gorgeous boys( please note not in a creepy way only on Twitter) and I envy you and your wife .....not because of your good looks fame money big house , because your children are young and if I try to tell you the many joys you are going to have raising them I couldn't find the words .....drink in every moment of their beautiful childhood up . Due to unseen circumstances ..I have raised 3 on my own, and they have and always will be my greatest achievement, my most precious memories are of sitting reading to them at bedtime , making sandcastles and yes mud pies at a beach , painting finger paintings in the kitchen , simple things , and I know your hectic lifestyle sometimes doesn't let you do these things daily ....make the most of these moments when their there.
Now back to whole thing of not knowing much about supernatural( sacrilege) yes in 6 weeks I have watched them all , and they have been excellent , but that doesn't mean I'm going to turn into a Fangirl(?) As I'm edging towards 50 I'm way to old for that ..... but for my friend Elle I will pretend to be supernatural crazy , because just now she needs somebody to share that with her.... so yes I will be pulling on that moose and squirrel t shirt she bought me.....yes I will try everyday to help her find something to smile about .....whether it be the silly website I made up for her about all things to do with castles raincoat ( really don't ask I embarrass my self sometimes ) or it dressing up in neOn pink and green and going to 80s concerts with her ( even though my heart belong to acdc ,iron maiden and other splendid rockers) .. or dragging myself to asylum 16 because she wants to have a photo taken with u all .( Yeah just look for somebody with a bucket hat and Sun glasses that will be me ) I will do what it take just till she finally figures out I'm not her saviour ....she is ....she raised her self from perdition ( corny I know) ...she threw away her implements of destruction, she fought her own way back to full health...she built up a new home a new set of friends... she did it all ....I was just there on thesidelines cheering her on ..... not because I needed praise or to be thanked ....just because I'm her friend, and if me making an absolute prat of myself on occasion makes her smile ....then pass me the red nose ...coco the clown is in town
Ok no more rambling ! What I'm trying to say is .....you will find away to get your health and mental well-being back to a good place , it won't happen overnight ...everything takes time, but like Elle you have friends( and family )cheering from the sidelines wearing bucket hats sunglasses red noses ..willing you on..
Take time for the little things and all the really big stuff will fall into place .... again I apologise for my ramblings but as a true Scot , we tend to do that ....
.may your healing begin
Take care New friend

Jared, you've done so much for us and now we need to give back. Sometimes we all get to that point where we just need to take a step back, breathe, and recollect ourselves. It's clear that you work very hard with Supernatural and I can only imagine how tough it can be to be away from your family because of it. It's easy for a lot of us to burn ourselves out. I know how it feels to be upset without knowing exactly why. There have been nights where I asked myself in tears, "What's wrong with me?" because I didn't know why I was crying. There are times where it's really hard to find motivation when I wake up. I get bored with the monotonous rhythm that I fall into. I think that there must be more to life and something better I could be doing but I know somehow it will all be okay. And I know you will be okay. Even though things don't always go the way we plan, things somehow work out in the end. Jared, I hope you're aware of how you've touched us all. I find escapism and motivation through supernatural. It gives me something to look forward to and makes me feel so grateful for the life I have. Never let the obstacles life throws at you hold you back. Look at them as challenges that will make you stronger and experiences that you will learn from. Please do whatever you need to recharge and gain your strength back. We're all here for you and love you very much. We must go through dark times to appreciate the happy times. It's just the way life is. Whatever it is you're dealing with, there is a light at the end. Keep fighting. You know you can. xoxoxo

Jared, my heart is breaking to hear you are having a difficult time. You have given everything to the SPNFamily and you have touched so many lives. You put everything into the show and give your time for the conventions but you need to give time for yourself. I hope you get home safely to your family and take the time you need to feel better. Supernatural is my "happy place" and it wouldn't be that without you. You are loved and appreciated for all you do. On and off the show. Please take time off to rest, relax and enjoy your family. You are loved #AlwaysKeepFighting

Jared you have given so much of yourself to others & brought light to causes kept in the shadows. Lives have been saved. Families brought together. SPN is a family. You are a huge part of that Jared. Thank you. #AlwaysKeepFighting

Jared, I hope you know how amazing it is that such a widely divergent group of people, of all ages, races, religions, and nationalities, care so much about you. When I binge watched SPN a couple of years ago I instantly fell in love with the show, largely because of Sam. I'm in my 50s and no other character has struck the same chord in me as Sam. His combination of strength, intelligence, compassion, self-doubt, loyalty, sensitivity and sheer goodness instilled in me an intense devotion to him and the show. As I explored some of the fandom and watched Con videos, I realized that much of what I loved and admired about Sam emanated from the actor who portrayed him, and my love for Sam began to extend to you. I have never been a fangirl, but you turned me into one. At first I was skeptical that you could truly be as warm, loving and welcoming to your fans as you seemed. How could someone care so much about a bunch of strangers? But it became apparent that you truly did care and my admiration for you grew stronger. You are unique among actors for being so sincerely and intensely loving towards your fans, and for opening your heart to them. I think you are in many ways the cornerstone of the SPN family, with your big smile and bear hugs. And just when I thought you couldn't be any more awesome, you started "always keep fighting." You welcomed into the SPN family anyone who has ever struggled with mental illness and that is amazing. Your love for people isn't restricted to the fandom, it seemingly encompasses almost everyone on the planet. I hope you know that you reap what you sow, and that love is coming back to you a million-fold. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Jared. Always keep fighting.
