    Hey there guys I feel less confident while using commas, and this reason being is that I had always though using a comma would be inserted where ever I would have token a deep breath, and I've been getting a lot or punctuation errors in my work. Any useful tips, or advise you can give me on how to use a comma so I won't make stupid mistakes? Any method you may use that may be helpful to me? Thank you. I would appreciate some guidance
