How is an anion stabilized?

I think that the electronegative anion induces the negative charge and stabilizes it. Also, resonance structures stabilize too

I would like to add that in oxoacids, when stabilization occurs, the negative charge around the molecule is delocalized which weakens the attraction between O-H. This creates a stronger acid because the H+ is more likely to break off.
