Take the new job and use it as a stepping stone to something you love that also pays well. Something could happen at your current job that makes you not love it (new manager, etc), and then you’d be stuck with a job you don’t love at a low salary.

That's a life changing bump in salary.

Use the money on a fun new hobby, so you can find meaning outside of work. Like social dance lessons! If you keep your living expenses the same you could also invest half your salary and retire early as a multimillionaire within a decade.
