- GQ: Didn't you always feel like a freak growing up?
- Tom Ford: I thought I was fabulous and everyone else was stupid.
It’s human to struggle. It’s human to nurse a broken heart, to wonder if the pain will ever let up, to howl through your tears every once in a while. And the best, most redeeming exciting thing I can imagine, from the smashed-up, broken place I’ve been, is that something beautiful could blossom out of the wreckage. That’s the goal.
And when we’re deep in the wreckage, I have to remind myself from time to time that it’s okay to cry. My friend Eve told me once that the ability to cry is a sign of health, because it means your body and your soul agree on something, and that what your soul is feeling, your body is responding to.
