NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- “Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro shared a quote about mental health on Instagram on Friday — two days after he avoided a felony charge in connection with his recent domestic violence arrest.

“It’s okay to feel unstable. It’s okay to disassociate. It’s okay to hide from the world. It’s okay to need help. It’s okay to not be okay,” the quote, which was attributed to an unknown author and posted to his Instagram stories, read. “Your mental illness is not a personal failure.”

Prosecutors in Los Angeles transferred Ortiz-Magro’s domestic violence case to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, which means the former reality TV star will not face a felony charge, TMZ reported.

Ortiz-Magro was arrested for a domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend, Saffire Matos, last month, according to the outlet.
