Pinterest may be inspiring some people in more ways than cake decorating and home decor. According to a new survey, it's causing stress in about 42 percent of users hoping for the picture-perfect hacks and crafts seemingly achieved so easily by fellow pinners.

Pinterest can also be a source of stress management, as about.com reported, encouraging people struggling with anxiety to use the site not for comparison purposes, but to engage further with established hobbies.

Lifestyle site Apartment Therapy suggests those trying to kick their Pinterest habit visit sites like Pinterest Fail, Pinterest, You Are Drunk and Pinstrosity to get a dose of humor and reality for many Pinterest projects.

For those who are feeling the stress but don't plan on quitting pinning anytime soon, here are some stress-busting quotes that might inspire a new anxiety-management board.
