What is the equivalent of ~/ in Bash?

Im writing a small bash script right now and i have a section where i want to "call" a file in the
Documents folder but when i put in ~/Documents it doesnt work. But when i put /home/z3r0ut/Documents it works. But if its like that it cant be executed on other system than mine. So i thought ~/ doesnt work and there must be a equivalent in bash. But after Googling i only find things to the other path things
