Purser started her emotional message with "Getting comfortable with your sexuality is a process. It's going to be ok. I wish I'd known that sooner.

"Another thing I wish I'd known about sexuality is to take it slow. It can define you as much as you want it to."

The teen star, who can also be seen in Riverdale, ended with some motivational words for her followers, saying "But it's gonna be ok. You're going to be ok. No, you're going to be great."

Just when we thought we couldn't love Barb anymore...
