Glechoma patients feel like orphans who have to adapt to be accepted and recognised by the adoptive parents. They do not rebel even to strong rules and keep a low profile because they are well off there. Lamiaceae can comply to the demands of others but a Glechoma patient, like an orphan, not only tries to belong to the family, but on the other hand has the feeling of not belonging. This alternation of feelings places Glechoma in stage 5. They are afraid to be abandoned, that when they live their own life, they will be deserted.
