Can you accommodate people who talk bad about you on your back?

Many people show their smiling face in front of you and talk bad about you on your back. Are you magnanimous enough to acommodate such people as your well wisher or friend?

No, I can't. I have never been able to "play nice" with people like that. So I just stay away. Even myself, I make it a point to never say anything behind a persons back that I would not be afraid to say to their face.

I don't want to have anything do to with people like that. I tell it like it is and expect my friends to do the same.

I would not tolerate such people, though I wouldnt go and fight with them but I would certainly avoid such kind of people and would never share any secret with them..... I do believe that no one is 100% perfect everybody has their own merits and demerits and we ourself are also not perfect .....so we shold try minimise our demerits and not speak evil about anyone...

Oh, no, you need to be alittle more accommodative. If they can praise you can talk bad about you as well Soumya.
