In brief: Yes
For you to move forward in your own life, i think it is important to let go of this secret in whatever way you can.
If you have a hard time approaching your parents, consider others. Since the abuse is not ongoing and the abuser gone, they can focus on helping you handle the impact on your life. Remember you have a purpose in life & this can only hold you back.
