You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.
