Help me understand Anxiety

    I have a friend that suffers from anxiety, they prefer to be alone a lot of the time. Though they are very successful at their career and very confident in that role but outside of work it seems to be a different story. I would just like to try understand it a bit more so I can be more mindful. I know they suffer from depression as well and that i understand, but I just have a hard time understanding anxiety and the issues it causes, they don't speak to me about it only to say they suffer from it and prefer their own company most of the time. From the outside they come across as very put together and confident. Just looking for people to shed some light on it and give me a better understanding. I don't want to be ignorant of it and would like to try understand.
