[NOOB ]How to eliminate the div's default margin and padding?

Hello, guys!

I’m currently coding my portfolio, (beginner’s front end project), and I just can’t get rid of this annoying margin on all my divs. I also want a little bit of padding, because I’m not liking my text elements touching the borders of my div. I don’t know if that’s something about bootstrap or about HTML itself. What must I do?

Thanks in advance =)

--------EDIT----------------

It would help to see your code (codepen link?).

If you are using Bootstrap, there should be a sensible balance of margin and padding baked in, but there can be issues that arise from not quite implementing it correctly - either with incorrectly nested divs or misuse (or lack of) .container or .container-fluid classes.

try in CSS

* {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

I just put the link to my codepen.io

.container-fluid {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  
}

did the job I think!

   div {padding-left: 10px; padding-right: 10px;}

this will add 10px distance from left and right border of every div.

Thanks! it worked as I wanted to.

Conners answer is correct. Maybe a css reset.
