They can be great to have, can bring people together and provide a lot of comfort... but maybe don't whip them out in public or show them to people unless they specifically ask.
It's okay to be proud of them, but everyone's got their own, and there's a wide range of perfectly valid reasons why yours might not be right for everyone.
You can't force them on people, they won't thank you for it, and if you can't see why that's morally wrong then you don't deserve to have them.
It may be painful, but when certain parts of it are infected, you need to carefully cut them away, (with help from a qualified third party if need be) it's better than leaving the whole thing to fester.
You should also NEVER press them onto kids, it'll warp their development and make it a lot harder for them to grow into functioning adults, they might manage to become functioning adults anyway, but that'll be despite, rather than because you doing this.
Kids need to discover their own at their own pace, (generally in their mid-to-late teens as they're on the verge of becoming adults) They need to spend a great deal of time in serious and honest introspection before choosing which is right for them, they can have education beforehand, but resist the urge to tell them that any given particular one is the only valid one.
