I have this weird...tick I guess you could call it. Anyone know if theres a medical term or condition for it?

This might sound strange..I think it does, but I have this thing where sometimes I associate inanimate objects with having human emotions. Like if I'm at the store and I need something, and there's only two left and I only need one, I feel like the one I don't take will be sad or something cuz now it's "lonely" lol. I know, really weird right? But I do this often. I get over it easily and don't make a big deal about it but it kinda bugs me cuz for a second I get really depressed. Anyone else do this, or know what it is?

  • It's called anthropomorphizing. You are assigning human feelings to non-human things.
