According to google, Anxiety is defined as "a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome." Even if it is google definition, I think it does portrays a pretty good idea of how anxiety is. Actually, if I can say anxiety is a pretty and hard knockdown everybody experience in their lives and the crazy part is that it can happen anywhere and anytime.
