Answer:

Hi,

Atoms are neutral therefore we can say that they are stable. In the case of electronic configuration of ions, they are more stable than atoms.

Explanation

Atoms are generally stable. But, if there is a loss in their stability, they take or give electrons to gain this stability and therefore form ions. This means both atoms and ions are stable. While atoms are stable by default whereas ions become stable by loss or gain of electrons.
