self as individual or relation: internal conflicts?

"I definitely think there is a conflict here, but I think it is not being inflicted from culture, but rather from within"

Could of course be both, from without and from within. But I think the former is more thought about, so glad to see you call attention to the latter. If there really are "social" boxes in the unconscious, then the story teller could well be faced with conflicts in trying to create a coherent story from unconscious inputs that, on the one hand, emphasize the value of relatedness and, on the other, report that relatedness causes problems in other realms.
