Guild Banks and Cheating

As many of you probably know, I play MMO's mostly solo.  I do like to join a guild, or in ESO's case, multiple guilds.  I do it mostly for chatting, but I will very occasionally group up.  Sometimes I'll also do some crafting, but not very often.  I pretty much avoid using guild banks, or the help of higher level guild members.

Using the guild bank feels like cheating to me.  In the case of House Stalwart, it is packed to the brim with resources and assorted items.  I know they are there for anyone to use, but it just doesn't feel right to me.  I have no problems putting stuff into the bank, but I can't bring myself to take things out.

I feel that I should advance solely on my efforts and not take help from the guild.  That's not to say that I think other people are cheating by using the opportunities available, it's a valid part of the game.  I guess it's just a personal choice that I should be able to do things on my own.
