I still haven't told my parents about it

One day my relatives had visited me. They lived quite far and visited us once in a while. They had a son, my cousin brother, who was 12 years elder to me. When we were playing together, he kissed me playfully on the cheek. I was 13, and an only child. Although I enjoyed the sibling affection but I wasn't sure if it was okay. Then he kissed me on the lips, holding too tightly when we hugged. I was so disgusted and scared after that.


I am 18 now. He is married and has a kid now. Since then he hasn't tried anything directly but I do feel uncomfortable when he hugs and except a few times when he has rubbed my knee or elbowed my chest when he was sitting closely in a car. Now that we live in the same city, we visit them quite often and I literally run out of the room with some excuse if I'm alone with him.

I haven't told anyone for years except one of my friends. He doesn't do anything now and I maintain distance from him. But I still panic everytime I'm left alone with him. I don't know how to tell my parents. I want to tell my parents about this and my parents have always told me they'd be supportive if anything ever happens and I should tell them but I'm so scared. I don't know how badly it'll affect the family relations because they're all very close. My mom has practically raised that cousin of mine. I don't know why I'm typing this here. But it feels good to vent out.
