    Question on comma usage (with example to be corrected)

    Don't miss out on those great experiences in life, don't stay at home just watching telly or using the internet, and don't become that sad old person full of regret and unfulfilled dreams. Live your life, see the world while you can, because you only live once.

    Is this grammatically correct? It's the comma usage I am mainly asking about, particularly the comma after "great experiences in life" and the comma after "using the internet". I am wondering if one of those should have been a full stop. The whole sentence is supposed to be tripling of imperatives to conclude a persuasive piece of writing I made.

    Re: Question on comma usage (with example to be corrected)

    Welcome to the forum, cm00.

    I would change the comma after 'Live your life' to a semicolon. That's all.

    There will be other opinions, I expect.
