Have you ever had to take back something you've very vocally supported in the past? We all hold myriad of opinions or beliefs that make up an important part of our identity, but with so many central ideas, some of them are bound to change. And when a new perspective is a major shift from one you vociferously held before, we often feel the need to make our new stance known, almost (or sometimes literally) as a sort of apology for what we now see as misguided.

To recant is to outwardly state that one's beliefs or opinions are now different from what they were before. The key to the word's meaning is that this announcement is public: if you take a new position on an issue but don't tell anyone, you have not recanted, but only changed your mind. Though it is possible to recant in response to any change in one's opinions, it is common for one to be forced to do so. This is especially true of public figures who are beholden to a form of public trust, and whose careers are dependent on maintaining the support of followers or constituents. Thus, recanting is a practice often seen among politicians and religious leaders, and they often do so to concede that they have breached the rigid belief structures common to both these fields.

From Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible:

Shoes would interfere with her conversation, for she constantly addresses the ground under her feet. Asking forgiveness. Owning, disowning, recanting, recharting a hateful course of events to make sense of her complicity. We all are, I suppose. Trying to invent our version of the story. All human odes are essentially one, "My life; what I stole from history, and how I live with it.”

The narrator’s mother has developed her own odd but intimately personal ritual for coping with and accepting the life she has lived, addressing the ground as though it is where the archive of her personal history resides. In coming to terms with her past, the old woman variously concedes, denies, and even rescinds, or recants, the decisions she has made and the beliefs she has held.
