Theoretically, having ADHD is something that can increase your empathy for other people.
You know what it’s like not to fit in, to struggle with things other people take for granted, to act in ways that don’t make sense to yourself or other people. All of that potentially makes you more understanding of other people’s quirks and imperfections.
But even if you have that empathy in a theoretical sense, applying it in the moment is harder. In fact, applying skills in the moment is where people with ADHD often experience challenges.
