What’s more important: Passion or work/life balance?

I have to decide my next step career wise and I have two options

The first is something I am passionate about, really enjoy doing, but it’s a little less secure in terms of job stability, and I’ll be working longer hours.

The second is something I enjoy, but definitely don’t have the same level of passion and may get bored of it. However there is great work/life balance with lots of time off.

Is doing something your passionate about really the most important thing?

Or in general, when I’m in my 40s, will I just want a job that allows me to live where I want, not work too hard and has a good work/life balance?

A lot of people spend years searching for their passion; I know what mine is but I’m not sure if it’s worth working longer hours/less time off.
