I think so.

Using your sentence as an example, removing the comma would imply the sentence said “Feels like maybe you should [be sad]”.

Whereas with the comma it implies “Feels like maybe you should [which is something I feel slightly sad about].”

Depth of meaning innit.

I prefer to keep the world in two camps: those who use emojis, and those who punctuate. If you break down that barrier, you break everything.
