Letting go does not mean forgetting, forgiving, or even accepting. Letting go means to let a situation be as it is, because the power to change the situation is out of one's control. Letting go can be practiced through mediation or through simple exercises each day. While letting go it not easy, the benefits of practicing the concept are vast. To hold onto anger, resentment, pain, and suffering are like holding onto a hot coal; thus, letting go is a practice of freeing yourself from unnecessary suffering to live more freely in the present moment.
