What's the significance for the bonds to be as far from each other as possible? Like how is repulsion and electrons involved?

the negative charge of electrons repel other negatively charged electrons making them try to be as far apart from each other as possible

The overall structure of the molecule is most stable when electrons are as far from each other as possible, which occurs because their negative charges are repelling each other.

The significance of the bonds being as far as apart from each other is to explain that the molecule is most stable when electrons are far away from each other as possible and this is because their negative charges repel each other.

How does the electron repulsion affect the bond lengths of the molecule, as well as the overall shape?

electron repulsion affects the overall shape of the molecule because it determines how far the bonds around the central atom are from each other. Lone pairs of electrons have stronger repulsion strength than bonding pairs .

I am not exactly sure how the repulsion would impact the bond length, for general understanding though the electrons are negatively charged therefore need to be as far away from each other and if it is a lone pair they have a stronger repulsion changing the shape of the molecule.
