Letting go is about abandoning our wanting life to be other than it is. Instead we deal with life as it is. We may have our preferences as to how we want life to be but fussing about how life is or acting unskillfully to get what we want is the wrong approach. We must be mindful and pay attention to what is (attachment) and address that with letting go. Another form of letting go is generosity. For example, with material objects, rather than take and keep, we share and give.
