Yes, I understand that a demotion is a blow to your pride, but, that is all. No reduction in salary, or conditions, AND it sounds like it is a job that you would rather do. I would be thrilled if that happened to me, but, then, too, I do not like responsibility.
It certainly sounds like you would be happier in the new job...being amongst people you like, and not having to answer to a dud boss, and happier for you means happier for your family and friends, since it is, in this current life, virtually impossible to separate work from home.
Years ago, I left a high pressure job for a less demanding job that paid a lot less, but I was happy to do that because the new job was a job that I knew that I would love, AND it meant no unpaid overtime, so that I could spend more time with my partner and my dog (surrogate child), and not having to cut short activities that I loved.
Although work was, and still would be, if I could work now, the most important thing in my life to me, that was only because I was not getting fulfilment at home, getting out of the long working hours enabled me to build a life away from work that gave me satisfaction, AND I could choose the people with whom I wanted to spend my time, and not have to suck up to people who irritated me.
