Nobody is going to remember if you were honors or not. They are more likely to remember your influence and your actions. I don't remember who my saluditorian was for highschool. Don't know who had honors in my college. When you look at the grand scheme of things it makes no difference in the work force. They only care if you can do the job.16

Use this to motivate yourself in the future.0
Who cares if you're not graduating with honors? You're still graduating. And you're under 18 anyway, so you're graduating high school. Do you know who cares about high school more than a week after it ends? Hint: Nobody.
Sometimes, you put in the maximum effort and don't get the results you want. That's life. This then is a chance for you to motivate yourself, to get excited for new challenges, to learn to face and overcome them, and to do better the next time around.
It will also be an opportunity to grow in humility. I say that specifically because the only people who will care who you are after the graduation ceremony is over will be the people celebrating you: Your family. And they will not be interested in whether you were an honors student or not. They will be interested in the fact that you just graduated from school and are preparing for the world outside of home. That being said, best not to worry yourself excessively about what others think of what you perceive to be a failure.
Congratulations to you and good luck.
