I felt he broke confident conversation. His wife and inside office retaliated the next day. How did they know? It was private and was said it would stay private. Bullying
I appreciate the desire to avoid putting too much detail about your situation on the internet where everyone can see it; but I'm afraid this is too far in the other direction. Without context, we have no idea who "he" is or what happened. (Please see this Guide: https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/five-tips-for-how-to-ask-for-legal-advice-on-avvocom .) This post is simply too unclear to be a basis for any kind of advice - aside from the standard disclaimer we always have to give here, that for personalized and confidential advice, you should consult with an attorney in private.

Mr. Bodzin gives good advice. I would add that your concern seems to be about someone who revealed information which you had given to him in confidence. Although there are communications which are required to be kept confidential (eg, certain banking information, medical information, attorney client communications) not every failure to "keep a secret" is actionable.
This comment is general in nature and is not intended as legal advice. It does not create an attorney client relationship and obviously is not confidential. You should contact an attorney in your area who can review with you all of the relevant facts and give you specific legal advice.
