Through - definition of through by The Free Dictionary

"When you are through" is derived from the American-ism of being "through" with something. But would more normally imply position or movement, e.g. "Superman flew through the air", "Push the trolley through the shop".

But even still some of the happiest people in the world still experience difficult days. But rather than staying in the depression, happy people will focus on solutions over the problem. Some turn to power mantras to help pull them through rough patches. If you are going through a tough time, these power mantras can help.

Are you through with the newspaper yet

In British-English one is not through with it but "done with it" (informal) or "finished with it" (more proper)

"Done" is considered less correct but is in common usage, I think, again, it may be an earlier American-ism, though I am not sure.

So to conclude; "When you are finished" is the best version, though Americans will also use the other two phrases interchangeably.

EDIT: "When you have finished" would be better again

The things that you are going through in your present situation are only temporary problems, and are nothing more than emotional and spiritual exercise to build your faith muscles for life later down the line.

When you are mature through understanding, awareness, and you have felttotally that ego is the cause of all your misery, simply one day you seethe dead leaf dropping.
