Stability-wise how do ligands form? When would a metal atom sharing a pair of electrons be lower energy than just forming a normal amount of covalent bonds and be done?

I think this has to do with things like Ligand Field Theory and Crystal Field splitting, which we aren't going to be discussing in class
