Why The phenoxide ion is more stable than phenol ?

The phenoxide ion is more stable than phenol, due to greater dispersal of negative charge, therefore. Equilibrium get shifted to forward direction. whereas alkoxide ion is less stable than alcohols due to intensification of negative charge, so equilibrium get shifted towards backward direction. Hence phenols are more acidic than alcohols.
