Not a literal translation, but speaking of "option":
I am not made to make someone priority when their/him/her if remain their option.

I am not the sort of people that make somebody priority when all I am to them is an option.

I wasn´t made to put first somebody that only puts me last.

If you hesitate between me and another person. Don´t choose me. I am not a backup plan, and definitely not a second choice.

Choose me or loose me.

If I can love the wrong person that much, imagine how much I can love the right one!

When someone treats me like an option, I´ll help them/him/her narrow their choices by removing myself from the equation. It´s that simple!

If you treat me like an option, I´ll leave you like a choice.

If you want me in your life, put me there, I should not fight for a spot.

I wasn’t born to be your "second choice".
Would add some emphasis to it - to "second choice" - something that can easily be done in speaking by the stress of "second choice" bit.

Another way to state that would be:
"I wasn´t born to be your "second choice", indeed not to be anyone´s second choice." Meaning "I don´t accept (or I wouldn´t accept) to be anyone´s second choice.

Muito bem respondido já está.
E as expressões Play 2º fiddle, B-plan, runner-up, cabem aqui?
- I wasn't born to play second fiddle to you.
- I haven't come to this world to be your B-plan.
- I won't be your runner-up.

Pode ser que ganhem outro significado numa sentença.

Nenhuma das três são corretas, no contexto apresentado.

Talvez plan B, em um contexto, possa ser entendida.

Plan B é a melhor.

I concur. Plan B would do.

Second-fiddle would mean to play subordinate or somehow inferior to somebody else. Including an inferior position (which doesn´t necessarily means derogative - the Vice-President plays second fiddle to the President), that is second-in-command.

Runner-up would mean one that comes in second (in a race, election, etc), that is, "em segundo lugar".

Both wouldn´t be the choice of words in that case. But it´s a good thing that you ask, because now you know the difference and won´t use them in that context.
Languages have that thing, words have proximate meanings.
So close that sometimes we use one word or expression and someone comes up with a better way of expressing it. That, in one language, the effect is amplified even more when we are using a pair of languages to communicate or study.
