Confusion of Passive Voice?

Hello. Mostly, when I see an example of passive voice, it almost always uses the word "by." For example, "The ball was kicked by Jenny." Anyway, could you explain why passive voice is misunderstood? Why do people think active voice is the way to go? Does passive voice always use the a form of "to be?"
