Hi,

Thank you for writing in to us.

After going through what you have shared with us I will suggest you to inform about this to your parents. However scared you are about what your parents might say to you, please inform your parents or any elder in your house. If someone is threatening you so much best is to handle it legally. Also because your safety is in question. Being honest with parents will be easier than bearing all this for long.

As far as your fears are concerned, they are normal and natural. I can imagine what you might be going through. Its not easy to live in such great fear all the time. The dilemma of whether to tell your parents or not will be really tough. But trust me on this, it is easier to be honest with your parents and come out clean with them than to risk your safety.

Please take care of yourself and inform an elder in family.

I hope it helps.

All the best.
