    ¿Cómo digo en inglés eso? Es una chica que dice: Me di cuenta que mis amigas hablaban mal de mí a mis espaldas.
    I realized my friends were criticizing me behind my back. Is that right?

    A more literal translation would be "talking bad about me." Or "badmouthing."

    Saying bad things about me behind my back. Or simply, "talking behind my back," which implies that the things being said were bad (people don't say good things about you behind your back).
