Hi! I've been mulling over something and thought I'd ask you, I've been pretty out of touch with J2's lives, become recently re-obsessed and haven't all caught up yet. Anyway: On March 4, 2016 Jared posted a facebook video for the AKF anniversary where he says in the last 12 months he's had his lowest low (we know that one - May 2015), but also "my highest high". That's the one that's puzzling me and I'd love to know more about it. Do we have any clue what this "highest high" could've been?
I apologize for having to make you wait so long for my response, but this required some serious digging from my part. I can’t help but think his highest high is a combination of things, rather than a specific pinnacle from that year.
And we really, really need to talk about AKF! It’s such a deeply personal project that must’ve opened up the dialogue with fans in a new way for Jared. To finally let this secret out and to be accepted for an imperfect human being must’ve been huge. Not to even mention hearing how the campaigns helped other people in their daily struggles with anxiety and depression must’ve affected him! It feels good to know you’re not alone. Jared opened up about his demons with such sincerity and the response was overwhelmingly positive. I admire – no, I adore him for his courage!
In short, many beautiful things (AAAAHHH, YES YOU ARE, OH NO! PLEASE! I CAN’T!) happened during that year and my bet is that Jared’s “highest high” was a combination of all that occured. Less bearding, less hiding and the realisation of the wonderful AKF campaigns are the things that stand out the most for me.
Thank you so much for encouraging me to take this stroll down the memory lane, darling! I do apologise for the delay again and hope that your week turns out to be fabulous!
PS: While I was looking into this video on spn-gossip, I came across this lovely gem.
